The human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection worldwide. Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (GBM) living with HIV are disproportionately impacted by HPV-associated anal cancer, with rates about 100-fold that of the general population. Fortunately, HPV vaccination has proven efficacy in preventing both anogenital warts (condyloma) in males and anal pre-cancers (anal intraepithelial neoplasia; AIN) in GBM up to the age of 26.

Background: Human papillomavirus is a common sexually transmitted infection that may affect the oropharynx, genitalia, or anus. Some strains of this virus may cause bulky growths around the anus known as giant anal condylomas. These can become large, disfiguring, and may cause bleeding, as well as difficulty with defecation and hygiene. Read More

Background: Benign, premalignant and malignant changes in the anogenital region, as in the oropharynx are often affected by a persistent HPV infection. Since a causal therapy isn't possible, the focus is on early diagnosis of dysplasia. Better knowledge of the human papilloma virus led to the development of the HPV vaccine and now primary prevention of cancer is possible. Read More

Therapeutic effect of photodynamic therapy combined with imiquimod in the treatment of anal condyloma acuminatum (CA) was investigated to explore its effect on immune function. A total of 104 patients with anal CA were randomly divided into two groups: Patients in the study group were treated with photodynamic therapy combined with imiquimod, and ii) patients in the control group were treated with recombinant human interferon α-2b cream. Clinical efficacy and immune function related indicators were compared between the two groups. Read More

Giant condyloma acuminatum (GCA) is a rare cauliflower-like lesion, also known as Buschke-L ewenstein tumor (BLT). Although characterized by benign histological features, the local behavior of GCA is extremely aggressive, showing progressive infiltration of the surrounding structures leading to tissue destruction by compression. As the correlation between HPV and GCA development grew stronger, the majority of the Authors came to the conclusion that HPV can not only cause CA but, associated with particular risk factors, it can lead to much more serious conditions such as BLT.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) type 6 is historically classified as low-risk HPV type and associates with low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions of the anogenital tract. Rare squamous carcinomas have been reported in association with these HPV types but the mechanism(s) behind this carcinogenic sequence have been unclear. We report 4 cases of low risk anogenital HPV infections-3 cervical (immature low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion with metaplastic phenotype) and one anal (exophytic condyloma) lesion-that manifested with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion/squamous cell carcinoma.

Background: Ingenol mebutat (IM)-gel is effective for the topical treatment of epithelial tumors, including actinic keratoses (AKs) or anogenital warts (AGW). AK patients treated with IM develop intensified inflammatory reactions on sights of prior clinical visible or palpable AKs as compared to the surrounding actinically damaged skin, suggesting the induction of a tumor cell-directed inflammation. AGW patients treated with IM develop even stronger inflammatory reactions with large erosions, suggesting a directed inflammatory response against HPV-infected keratinocytes. Read More

The expression profile of miRNAs and their function in condyloma acuminatum (CA) remains unknown. In this study, we aimed to detect the effects of miR-143 and miR-145, the most downregulated in CA samples using high-throughput sequencing, on cell proliferation and apoptosis, to determine a novel therapeutic target for CA recurrence. RT-qPCR was used to validate the lower expression of miR-143 and miR-145 in a larger size of CA samples, and the expression of NRAS in CA samples was significantly higher than self-controls as determined by western blotting assay.

Background: Anal canal condyloma acuminata are common, sexually transmitted lesions, most often caused by the human papillomavirus. The relatively high recurrence rate of anal canal condyloma acuminata can be attributed to the unsuccessful elimination of viruses in areas of subclinical and latent infection. This study aimed to observe and evaluate the effectiveness of 5-aminolevulinic acid-photodynamic therapy combined with monitoring of human papillomavirus load changes in patients with anal canal condyloma acuminata.

Context: - Histologic distinction between condyloma acuminatum and various benign and malignant condyloma-like lesions in the anogenital area poses a common diagnostic challenge to pathologists across subspecialties.
Objective: - To review the overlapping and distinguishing features of condyloma acuminatum and its mimics, and to clarify confusing terminology and diagnostic criteria for problematic entities.
Data Sources: - A review of the literature on condyloma acuminatum (ordinary and giant types), verrucous carcinoma, warty/warty-basaloid high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion and squamous cell carcinoma, papillary squamous cell carcinoma, bowenoid papulosis, verruca vulgaris, epidermolytic acanthoma, and verruciform xanthoma was performed.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) causing nearly all cases of cervical carcinoma and genital condyloma worldwide. While HPV vaccination rates are higher in Rhode Island compared to other states, still 27% of female adolescents are not fully vaccinated. The requirement for parental consent for vaccination administration poses a barrier to HPV vaccine uptake and hinders adolescent autonomy. Read More

Background: Condylomata acuminata [anogenital warts (AGW)] are prevalent in HIV-infected individuals and sexually active populations at risk for HIV acquisition, and have been associated with HIV transmission. We compared AGW to control tissue for abundance, types and location of HIV-target cells, and for susceptibility to HIV infection in vitro, to provide biological evidence that AGW facilitate HIV transmission.
Methods: We used immunohistology to identify HIV-target cells in AGW and control skin. Read More

The present study aimed to identify the probable anti-Condyloma acuminata (CA) mechanism of microRNA-375 (miRNA-375) in human papillomavirus (HPV). Firstly, the overexpression of miRNA-375 significantly suppressed cell proliferation, increased lactate dehydrogenase activity and induced apoptosis in HPV-18(+) cervical cancer cells. The overexpression of miRNA-375 significantly increased caspase-3 and caspase-9 activities, induced B-cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2)/Bcl-2-associated X protein, tumor protein 53 and cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1 protein expression and suppressed cyclin D1 and survivin protein expression in HPV-18(+) cervical cancer cells.

Introduction: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a common sexually transmitted infection in the United States that can lead to both malignant (high-risk) and benign (low-risk) findings. These low-risk findings include both genital condyloma, anal warts, and adult or juvenile papillomatosis, which are directly attributable to subtypes HPV 6 and HPV 11. We aim to estimate the prevalence of genital wart infections in men in the US population using a nationwide sample. Read More
