DOMENECH-VINOLAS, Marta et al. Incidence, psychosocial burden, and economic impact of genital warts in Mexico. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2018, vol.60, n.6, pp.624-632.  Epub 22-Ago-2019. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/10008.

Objective:

To estimate the burden of genital warts (GW) in Mexico.

Materials and methods:

We estimated the annual incidence of GW based on data reported by specialist physicians. We also assessed GW treatment practices, the average cost of treatment, and the psychosocial burden of GW among patients.

Results:

The annual incidence of GW in Mexico was estimated to be 547 200 cases. Treatment procedures vary by specialist and patient gender. The estimated annual cost was $195 million USD. The psychosocial impact of GW was slightly greater in males than females.

Conclusions:

This is the first evaluation of the burden of GW in Mexico. Our data suggest that GW are common, with significant health-related costs and psychosocial impact.
