    Linear ectopic sebaceous hyperplasia of the penis: the last memory of Tyson's glands.
    G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2016 Sep 6. Epub 2016 Sep 6.
    Clinica Dermatologica, La Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy -
    Pathologists who find ectopic glands on the glans and/or on the prepuce, often describe them as Tyson's glands. In this regard, the term Tyson's glands can be replaced by two different descriptive expressions: papillomatosis corona penis and ectopic sebaceous glands. A 15-year old Caucasian male patient presented to our Institute with multiple and asymptomatic circular skin colored-to-yellowish papules at the level of the foreskin, also affecting the shaft of the penis, where they assumed a linear feature.

    Low rate of detection of mucosal high-risk-type human papillomavirus in Korean patients with extragenital Bowen's disease and squamous cell carcinoma, especially in digital cases.
    Biomed Res Int 2013 19;2013:421205. Epub 2013 Aug 19.
    Department of Pathology, College of Medicine, Hallym University Sacred Heart Hospital, 896 Pyungchon-Dong, Dongan-Ku, Anyang 431-070, Republic of Korea.
    Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection has been demonstrated in some of the nonmelanoma skin cancers as well as in precancerous lesions. Multiple infections of mucosal high-risk HPV may contribute to the onset of digital Bowen's disease through, if any, digital-genital transmission. We screened for the presence of the mucosal HPV DNA in patients with extragenital Bowen's disease (n = 30), squamous cell carcinoma (n = 11), bowenoid papulosis (n = 9), verrucous carcinoma (n = 1), actinic keratosis (n = 5), and basal cell carcinoma (n = 5).

    Anogenital malignancies and premalignancies: facts and controversies.
    Clin Dermatol 2013 Jul-Aug;31(4):362-73
    Department of Dermatology, Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty, Istanbul University, 34098 Istanbul, Turkey.
    Anogenital malignancies and premalignancies are an important personal/public health problem due to their effects on individuals' physical, mental, and sexual health. Also, due to their etiological association with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, anogenital malignancies and premalignancies constitute an immense public health burden. In addition to HPV infection, immunosuppression, HIV infection, chronic dermatoses, such as lichen sclerosis, previous radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments, and smoking, are the other important etiopathologic factors in the development of anogenital malignancies and premalignancies.

    Expression of cyclin D1 and cyclin E significantly associates with human papillomavirus subtypes in Bowenoid papulosis.
    Acta Histochem 2013 May 6;115(4):339-43. Epub 2012 Oct 6.
    Department of Dermatology, The Third Affiliated Hospital of Suzhou University, Jiangsu, Changzhou 213003, China.
    Human papillomavirus (HPV) incorporates high-risk HPV (hrHPV) and low-risk HPV (lrHPV) subtypes according to its contribution to oncogenesis. Different HPV subtypes could regulate the cell cycle of infected cells at different levels. To date, the expression of cyclin D1 and cyclin E in Bowenoid papulosis (BP) tissues and its association with HPV infection still remains elusive. Read More

    A retrospective analysis of real-life practice of off-label photodynamic therapy using methyl aminolevulinate (MAL-PDT) in 20 Italian dermatology departments. Part 2: oncologic and infectious indications.
    Photochem Photobiol Sci 2013 Jan;12(1):158-65
    Piergiacomo Calzavara-Pinton, Department of Dermatology, University of Brescia, Piazzale Spedali Civili 1, I-25123 Brescia, Italy.
    Photodynamic therapy (PDT) with methyl aminolevulinate (MAL) has been suggested as a useful treatment option in a number of skin tumors, other than approved indications, and infections. However, evidence is poor because it is mainly supported by isolated case reports or small case series, often with conflicting results. To assess the effectiveness, tolerability and safety of off-label MAL-PDT in daily clinical practice in 20 Italian hospitals, a retrospective observational study of medical records of patients treated for off-label oncologic and infectious skin conditions was carried out.

    Detection of human papillomavirus type 16 in Bowen's carcinoma of the toe.
    Int J Dermatol 2012 Jul;51(7):804-8
    Department of Dermatology, Kitasato University School of Medicine, Kanagawa, Japan.
    Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is known to cause cervical cancer. Because it has been detected in lesions of Bowenoid papulosis, Bowen's disease, and Bowen's carcinoma, HPV infection has been implicated in the pathogenesis of these diseases.

    Methods: A 44-year-old man was diagnosed clinicopathologically with Bowen's carcinoma of the right great toe. Read More

    A combined assay of hTERT and E6 oncoprotein to identify virus-infected keratinocytes with higher telomerase activity in human papillomaviruses 16 and 18-related bowenoid papulosis.
    Am J Dermatopathol 2012 Dec;34(8):813-7
    Department of Dermatology, Clinical Center for Infectious Skin Diseases, No.1 Hospital of Wuhan, Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
    In the present study, we aim to evaluate the application potential of a combined assay of human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) and E6 oncoprotein in screening the virus-infected keratinocytes with higher telomerase activity in human papillomaviruses (HPV) 16- and 18-related bowenoid papulosis (BP). HPV16/18 DNA in BP (n = 123) was identified by in situ hybridization, the expression of hTERT and E6 in HPV16/18-related BP (n = 68) was determined by immunohistochemistry. We demonstrated that the expression of hTERT correlated well with that of E6 oncoprotein in HPV16/18-related BP lesions (Spearman rho = 0. Read More

    Ann Dermatol 2011 Nov 3;23(4):493-6. Epub 2011 Nov 3.
    Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, Pusan National University, Busan, Korea.
    We report the case of a 23-year-old woman who developed bowenoid papulosis of the vulva and subsequent periungual Bowen's disease. She had a history of a long standing periungual wart on her right thumb before the outbreak of periungual Bowen's disease. By HPV DNA chip, human papillomavirus (HPV) 11, 18 and 31 were identified from the periungual lesions, and HPV 11, 18 and 33 from the vulvar lesion. Read More

    Cutaneous manifestations of human papillomaviruses: a review.
    Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2011 Sep;20(3):145-54
    St John's Institute of Dermatology, St Thomas Hospital, London, UK.
    Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are small DNA viruses of the papovavirus family, with more than 100 types already described. Their importance in human disease cannot be overemphasized because these agents are among the most common pathogens in cutaneous infectious diseases and are very important in a subset of predominantly, but not exclusively, genital squamous-cell carcinomas. HPVs can be associated with a variety of cutaneous as well as mucosal manifestations. Read More

    [Penile dermatological lesions: how to identify premalignant lesions?].
    Prog Urol 2011 Mar;21 Suppl 2:S50-2
    Service d'Urologie, CHU d'Angers, 4 rue Larrey, 49933 Angers Cedex, France.
    Penile squamous cell carcinoma is a highly evolving tumor. Thus an early diagnosis is a major matter in order to avoid tumoral spread and mutilating surgery. Intra-epithelial neoplasia is a carcinoma in situ involving a disorganized cytological structure and intraepithelial architecture without any change on the derma. Read More

    Anogenital malignancies and pre-malignancies.
    J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2011 Aug 28;25(8):885-95. Epub 2011 Jan 28.
    Department of Dermatology, Maastricht University Medical Centre, Maastricht, The Netherlands.
    Anogenital pre-malignancies and malignancies are frequently encountered. Aetiopathogenetically, human papillomavirus (HPV) infection plays a critical role. However, there is a variable degree of association of HPV infection with the development of anogenital malignancies. Read More

    [The specifities of the HPV-genital infections in males].
    Med Glas (Zenica) 2010 Aug;7(2):89-95
    University Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Zagreb University Hospital Centre and Zagreb University School of Medicine, Zagreb, Croatia.
    Anogenital infections caused by Human papillomavirus (HPV) are the most frequently diagnosed sexually transmitted infections of viral origin and up to 150 HPV DNA types have been recognized so far. Anogenital warts (condylomata acuminata) are the most common lesions presented in men, however, during the last decade the other HPV-associated exaggerated lesions such as condylomata plana, penile, scrotal, and anal intraepithelial neoplasias, as well as the penile, urine bladder and prostate cancer have been studied somewhat more extensively. The clinical variations might range from clinically invisible, asymptomatic lesions to the bizarre forms of giant condyloma of Buschke-Löwenstein type, including Bowenoid papulosis, Mb. Read More

    Stem cell markers (cytokeratin 15, cytokeratin 19 and p63) in in situ and invasive cutaneous epithelial lesions.
    Mod Pathol 2011 Jan 17;24(1):90-7. Epub 2010 Sep 17.
    Dermatopathology Section, Department of Dermatology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA 02118, USA.
    The inherent longetivity of stem cells causes them to be susceptible to multiple genetic hits. Thus, it is not surprising that stem cells are implicated in the etiopathogenesis of select cutaneous neoplasms. However, most studies to date are restricted to the use of a single marker (p63, cytokeratin-15 or cytokeratin-19) and do not appear to compare distribution of stem cell markers in a spectrum of cutaneous in situ versus invasive epithelial malignancies.
