Human papillomavirus: More than 100 varieties of human papillomavirus exist. Different types of hpv infection can cause warts on different parts of your body. For example, some types of hpv infection cause plantar warts on the feet, while other varieties of hpv infection are responsible for the warts that most commonly occur on the hands or face. Some on the genital areas also.
