Bulky Condyloma Acuminata following Ustekinumab Treatment for Plaque Psoriasis: A Case Report.

Case Rep Dermatol 2021 Jan-Apr;13(1):244-247. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Section of Dermatology, DISSAL, San Martino-IST Polyclinic Hospital, University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy.

Ustekinumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody targeting the pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL)-12 and IL-23 approved for the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. We report a case of a patient treated for chronic plaque psoriasis with ustekinumab who developed bulky condyloma acuminata shortly after initiating the treatment. Although ustekinumab has already been described in literature associated with other forms of human papilloma virus skin infections, this is the first case to our knowledge in which ustekinumab is associated with genital warts.

Safety and Efficacy of Nano-Pulse Stimulation Treatment of Non-Genital, Cutaneous Warts (Verrucae).

Lasers Surg Med 2021 May 19. Epub 2021 May 19.

Pulse Biosciences, 3957 Point Eden Way, Hayward, California, 94545.

Background And Objectives: This study describes the effects of nano-pulse stimulation (NPS) technology on the common verruca with the objectives of demonstrating efficacy and safety. NPS technology applies nanosecond pulses of non-thermal electrical energy to induce highly localized regulated cell death in the cellular structures of the targeted zone with negligible effects on surrounding non-cellular structures. Previous clinical studies applying NPS to common, benign skin lesions have demonstrated safety and efficacy in clearing seborrheic keratoses and sebaceous hyperplasia. Read More

Sci Rep 2021 May 10;11(1):9855. Epub 2021 May 10.

Marsa Sexual Health Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Access to sexual and reproductive health in conservative communities and in the MENA region are particularly limited and, as such, increase women's vulnerability to unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortions, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The aim was to assess the prevalence of STIs, sexual practices, recreational drug-use and their possible associations among cisgender unmarried women residing in Lebanon. Data on demographics, sexual practices and substance-use were collected from 2083 unmarried cisgender women who voluntarily attended a sexual health clinic in Lebanon between 2015 and 2019.

Health Impact and Cost-Effectiveness of Implementing Gender-Neutral Vaccination With the 9-Valent Human Papillomavirus Vaccine in Belgium.

Front Pharmacol 2021 12;12:628434. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Merck Sharp & Dohme, Lyon, France.

Routine human papillomavirus (HPV) immunization in Belgium is currently regionally managed, with school-aged girls receiving the 9-valent HPV (9vHPV) vaccine in Flanders and Wallonia-Brussels with a national catch-up program for females only. This study will assess whether expanding these programs to gender-neutral vaccination (GNV) with the 9vHPV vaccine is a cost-effective strategy in Belgium. A validated HPV-type transmission dynamic model estimated the potential health and economic impact of regional vaccination programs, comparing GNV versus female-only vaccination (FOV) with the 9vHPV vaccine in individuals aged 11-12 years in Flanders, GNV with the 9vHPV vaccine versus FOV with the 2-valent HPV (2vHPV) vaccine in individuals aged 12-13 years in Wallonia-Brussels, and national catch-up GNV versus FOV with the 9vHPV vaccine for those aged 12-18 years.

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

Department of Dermatology, Consorci Hospital General Universitari de Valencia, Avenida Tres Cruces 2.

Epidermolytic acanthomas (EA) are rare benign tumors of unclear etiology that present as flat, sometimes slightly keratotic, pale or whitish papules that are usually asymptomatic. Not uncommonly, their clinical appearance in the anogenital area might lead to misdiagnosis as other lesions that commonly develop at this site, such as condylomata acuminata. Though mainly asymptomatic, there are also reports of EA presenting with persistent genital pruritus. Read More
