Background: Without clear evidence, selecting among the existing immunotherapeutic options for warts remains challenging. Objective: Through network meta‐analyses, we aimed to evaluate the comparative efficacy of different intralesional immunotherapeutic modalities. Methods: We included randomized controlled trials comparing intralesional immunotherapeutic modalities to cryotherapy, placebo, or imiquimod. All outcomes were presented as odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals. Both… Expand
