Papillomavirus particles are approximately 55nm in diameter.
The capsid is composed of 72 morphological units, or capsomers, arranged on the surface of a T=7 icosahedron. Thecapsomers located at each of the 12 vertices, are pentavalent (i.e. each is surrounded by five adjacent capsomers), and the other 60 capsomers are hexavalent (each adjacent to six capsomers).
✓Manifestations include
✓ common warts (verrucae vulgaris)
✓ palmo-plantar warts, flat warts (verrucae plana)
