Total 35 patients were included. Clinical response was documented by recording the decrease in number and size of viral warty lesions at each visit i.e. at 2 weekly intervals for 4 sessions and follow up and examination of patient was done 3 months after last injection Result: Most common type of viral warts were verruca plana (45.7%) followed by filiform viral warts (22.9%) and verruca vulgaris (20%). Almost half of the patients have complete response (51.4%) than 37.1% have partial response and only 11.4% did not have any improvement Conclusion: Intralesional Vitamin D3 injection is an innovative approach for the treatment of viral warts.
