Introduction: Wart is a contagious dermal disease with diﬀerent types. Wart has long-term treatment with symptoms of multiple relapses, which involve larger surfaces. It has no defnite medical treatment in traditional medicine and the provided treatments encounter restrictions and side eﬀects especially in the facial warts.
Case Presentation: Iranian traditional medicine (ITM) has provided diﬀerent, economic, and low cost treatments for warts. One therapeutic method is using Myrtus communis L. (Myrtle) topically. The goal of this study is to investigate the efcacy of Myrtle as a method of ITM. In this study, we present two patients with common warts. They are from Iran and live in Yazd. They were taken Myrtle topically on their body but not on their faces.
Conclusions: The facial warts of both cases have completely cured by using Myrtle. We hypothesized that Myrtle not only have antiviral eﬀects but also may have a systemic impression. It can use topically on a part of body with inﬂuence on the other parts. Myrtle is especially useful for facial warts. These two cases highlighted a new method for treatment of common warts especially facial warts and it needs more investigations
