Treatment of genital warts (HPV lesions) by Laser-surgery was performed in 90 patients and 90 male partners under topical anaesthesia with 1-3 gr EMLA cream and in 45 patients and 45 males (control groups) under 1-2 mL 2% Carbocaine infiltration. EMLA cream was applied to warts 5-18 minutes (median = 7) before operation. Pain from application of anaesthetic and Laser surgery was significantly less (p < 0.001) in the groups treated by EMLA. Side effects were minimal in the EMLA groups. The results suggest that EMLA cream could be the anaesthetic of choice in Laser surgery of genital warts.
