ALA-PDT successfully treated multiple cSCC in situ and AK in a patient with Epidermodysplasia verruciformis.

Photodiagnosis Photodyn Ther 2021 Jun 11:102395. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Institute of Photomedicine, Shanghai Skin Disease Hospital, Tongji University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China. Electronic address:

5-aminolaevulinic acid photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) has emerged as a non-invasive treatment modality for premalignant and malignant skin lesions. It has the advantage of better tolerance and providing better cosmetic outcomes than conventional treatment methods. Herein, we report a patient who suffered from multiple cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) in situ and actinic keratosis (AK) scattered in the body's sun-exposed areas, which had led him to undergo multiple surgical resections since the age of 16.

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder. Individuals with EV are more susceptible to the development of cutaneous neoplasia in sun-exposed regions. This disease should be closely observed for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) or pre-cancerous lesions - if neoplasia is found, it should be removed. Read More

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis: report of two patients with autosomal dominant inheritance.

Dermatol Online J 2021 Feb 15;27(2). Epub 2021 Feb 15.

Department of Dermatology, University of São Paulo Medical School, São Paulo/SP.

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis is a rare genodermatosis associated with mutations in the EVER1/TMC6 and EVER2/TMC8 genes. The inheritance is considered to be autosomal recessive, but reports suggesting an autosomal dominant inheritance indicate disease genetic heterogeneity. Its onset occurs in early childhood and presents as a combination of pityriasis versicolor-like, flat wart-like and seborrheic keratosis-like lesions, with a potential for malignant transformation, mainly squamous cell carcinoma.

Utility of the Human Papillomavirus Vaccination in Management of HPV-associated Cutaneous Lesions.

Skin Therapy Lett 2021 Mar;26(2):6-8

Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine; Roanoke, VA, USA.

Human papillomavirus (HPV)-induced cutaneous disease is a common complaint for patients presenting for dermatology evaluation. Infection by HPV is the major etiologic factor in the development of cutaneous warts, epidermodysplasia verruciformis, and possibly a subset of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. Carcinoma of the genitourinary tract, most notably cervical carcinoma, is the most severe manifestation of infection with specific serotypes of HPV. Read More

Cervical dysplasia in a patient with inherited epidermodysplasia verruciformis-A mere coincidence?

J Cutan Pathol 2021 Jun 22;48(6):763-770. Epub 2020 Dec 22.

Department of Pathology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, Arkansas, USA.

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare inherited or acquired genodermatosis caused by increased susceptibility to infection by the beta subtypes of human papillomavirus (HPV). The co-occurrence of EV with high-risk (HR) HPV infection leading to cervical dysplasia is unreported in the literature to date. We report a patient with inherited EV who developed extensive anogenital and cervical dysplasia linked to concurrent HR-HPV infection. Read More

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)-Associated Squamous Cell Carcinoma In situ With Positive p16 and Ki-67 Immunohistochemical Stains in a Young Immunocompetent Patient.

Cureus 2020 Aug 11;12(8):e9673. Epub 2020 Aug 11.

Dermatology, Honor Health/Affiliated Dermatology, Scottsdale, USA.

There is an oncogenic role of human papillomavirus (HPV) in the development of premalignant and malignant skin cancers, especially squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). Some of the major risk factors for SCC include older age, fair skin types, immunosuppression, ultraviolet radiation (UVR), history of epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV), and co-carcinogenesis by the HPV. Our case report exemplifies a unique case of a low-risk, 34-year-old female who developed an HPV-associated squamous cell carcinoma in situ (SCCIS) on her left palmar hand, despite having none of the contributing risk factors.

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) infect squamous epithelia and can induce hyperproliferative lesions. More than 220 different HPV types have been characterized and classified into five different genera. While mucosal high-risk HPVs have a well-established causal role in anogenital carcinogenesis, the biology of cutaneous HPVs is less well understood. Read More

Department of Biomedicine, University of Basel and University Hospital Basel, Basel, Switzerland.

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a genodermatosis characterized by the inability of keratinocytes to control cutaneous β-HPV infection and a high risk for non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Bi-allelic loss of function variants in TMC6, TMC8, and CIB1 predispose to EV. The correlation between these proteins and β-HPV infection is unclear. Read More

Department of Anatomical Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Although historically known as a genetic disorder, epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) might be acquired in patients with a noninherited defective cell-mediated immunity. This article reports a case of EV in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus and a history of 3 years immunosuppressive methylprednisolone treatment. The microscopic features of the skin biopsy showed morphologic changes of the keratinocytes characteristic of human papilloma virus (HPV) infections and immunoreactivity to p16. Read More

Abstract: Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare dermatologic condition that is clinically characterized by flat, cutaneous, verrucous papules, pityriasis versicolor-like lesions, and similar lichenoid papules. There are 2 forms of EV: a classic inherited genodermatosis and a secondary acquired form. EV predisposes individuals to infections with certain types of human papillomavirus virus and subsequently increases the risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. Read More

Departament of Dermatology, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a genodermatosis related to human beta-papillomavirus (beta-HPV), with a high risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC). Claudins are transmembrane proteins expressed in epithelia and may be altered during carcinogenesis. For a better understanding of the role of beta-HPV in cutaneous carcinogenesis, this claudin expression study was conducted on lesions of patients with and without EV. Read More

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) infect mucosal or cutaneous stratified epithelia. There are 5 genera and more than 200 types of HPV, each with a specific tropism and virulence. HPV infections are typically asymptomatic or result in benign tumors, which may be disseminated or persistent in rare cases, but a few oncogenic HPVs can cause cancers. Read More
