Doctors believe that Kosawa's case was a perfect storm, created by a genetically inherited immune defect and a type of human papillomavirus, or HPV. Kosawa told doctors that the warts started appearing after getting a cut in his skin as a teenager. There are hundreds of types of HPV, some of which are linked to cervical cancer and others that cause common warts that can be acquired through cuts.

"The HPV-2 virus that causes common warts is the same exact wart virus that he's infected with, except it was growing out of control," Gaspari said.

I learned about the "Treeman" here on ATS a few days ago, and was surprised to see this headline on CNN. It is strange that this is the only case we have ever heard of this happening. You would think it would be a bit less rare. I am sure more people out there have a weak immune system and have gotten weird infections. Good thing he came to his senses and is getting help!
