Management of periungual wart is a great challenge, especially when there is subungual extension. The major cause of recurrence of wart is improper clinical assessment of its extent and not directing therapy against the entire wart. This difficulty of ascertaining its extent could be overcome with this finger-shaped red light emitting diode device. Red light in the device penetrates the thick palmar skin and dark constitutive skin colour due to its longer wavelength.
