Two errors occurred in this editorial by Raymond Maw and Geo von Krogh (14 October, pp 910-1). The title should have been “The management of anogenital warts.” Additionally, Dr Maw's statement of competing interest was inadvertently omitted. It should have read: RM has received fees for speaking from 3M, which manufactures Aldara (imiquimod). 3M and Perstorp have funded clinical trials in his department. Perstorp manufactures pdophyllotoxin. RM does not believe that this remuneration has influenced his input into the editorial.
