Abstract

Genital warts in children indicate the possibility of sexual abuse. If sexual child abuse is recognized or suspected, then the law in all states requires that the physician report this to the appropriate authority. The dermatologist may be the first person to suspect the problem and can be of great help in protecting the child from future harm.
