A 49-year-old White female was referred for evaluation of a warty lesion, which had been present on her abdomen for 3 months. It had not responded to liquid nitrogen treatment or over-the-counter wart treatments. The lesion had gradually become more irritated and had increased in size. The patient had a 10-year history of rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.

The patient's medications included immunosuppressive treatments, including prednisone for 10 years, adalimumab (Humira, Abbott Laboratories, Abbott Park, Ill) for 2 years, and nabumetone (Relafen, GlaxoSmithKline, Research Triangle Park, NC) for 3 years.
