Human papillomavirus genotype distribution of genital keratotic lesions.

Australas J Dermatol 2022 May 11. Epub 2022 May 11.

Department of Dermatology, Kosin University College of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Genital keratotic lesions include bowenoid papulosis (BP), which histologically resembles squamous cell carcinoma in situ containing high-risk HPV, condyloma acuminatum (CA) that is a genital wart containing mostly low-risk HPV, and genital seborrheic keratosis (GSK), which is a benign epidermal tumour lacking a clear etiologic relationship with HPV. This study compared HPV genotype distributions among BP, CA and GSK and revealed that BP and GSK were related to high-risk HPV whereas CA was related to low-risk HPV. It is plausible that GSK is a distinct epidermal tumour often related to high-risk HPV rather than merely a senescent form of CA considering the overall discrepancy in the frequency distribution of HPV genotypes along with histopathological differences, and the detection of high-risk HPV in GSK alerts physicians to consider more active treatment and continued follow-ups.

Sensitivity of two Australian melanoma risk tools to identify high-risk individuals among people presenting with their first primary melanoma.

Australas J Dermatol 2022 May 6. Epub 2022 May 6.

School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Aims: Regular skin examinations for early detection of melanoma are recommended for high-risk individuals, but there is minimal consensus regarding what constitutes 'high-risk'. Melanoma risk prediction models may guide this. We compared two online melanoma risk prediction tools: Victorian Melanoma Service (VMS) and Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) risk tools; to assess classification differences of patients at high-risk of a first primary melanoma.
