Present study aimed at defining the prognostic value of immunoglobulin profile in human papilloma virus infection by assessing and correlating the levels of immunoglobulin with type, number, duration and response to therapy in 54 randomly selected cases from age group 8 to 42 years (male –35, female – 19). Raised IgG levels were seen maximally in all spectrum of warts (59.25%) followed by IgM (40.74%) and IgA (25.92%). It was also seen that 82% of cases with elevated IgM and IgA were free from lesions with no recurrence at 6 months follow up with any form of treatment (electrodessication, 25% podophyllin, 50% trichloroacetic acid,50% 5-fluorouracil). On the contrary, patients with elevated IgG level showed poor response (64%) and partial response (16%) with recurrence of 38% at the end of 6 months. Cure rate was 54% with combined elevation of IgG, IgA and IgM with recurrence rate of 24%.
