Airborne particulate concentration during non-thermal nano-pulse stimulation wart clearance is negligible compared to thermal modalities.

Lasers Surg Med 2022 01 25;54(1):189-192. Epub 2021 Aug 25.

Biology Group, Pulse Biosciences, Hayward, CA.

Objectives: As clinicians continue to implement safety protocols amid the global pandemic, considerations to mitigate potential viral transmission of airborne particulates (plume) generated from certain dermatologic procedures are of growing interest. This study intended to measure the change in airborne particulate matter using a non-thermal energy modality called nano-pulse stimulation (NPS) and compare levels of concentration to common thermal modalities (CO2 laser and electrocautery). NPS is a new non-thermal modality that applies nanosecond pulses of electrical energy to induce regulated cell death in cellular structures while sparing the surrounding acellular structure of the dermis.

The Ring Verruca Plantaris in Cantharidin Use .

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2018 Mar;108(2):189-193

Verrucae (warts) are the most common viral infections of the skin, affecting 7% to 10% of the general population. Typically caused by human papillomavirus type 1, plantar warts manifest as benign proliferation of the epithelial cells on the feet. It has been cited that up to one-third of nongenital warts become recalcitrant, and biopsy is often required to confirm diagnosis and direct appropriate treatment. Read More

Can We Predict the Effectiveness of Intralesional Immunotherapy in Recalcitrant Warts?

Skinmed 2016;14(6):413-421. Epub 2016 Dec 1.

Department of Dermatology, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, India.

Immunotherapy has been used for recalcitrant, large, and multiple warts, although it is difficult to predict which patient will respond. An open interventional cohort trial was conducted in 50 adult patients with recalcitrant multiple, nongenital warts in whom intralesional immunotherapy was given using the vaccine. The authors determined whether the wart resolution was dependent on the immune response. Read More

Medical School, the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, 1401 Binz, Suite 200, Houston, TX 77004, USA.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most common sexually transmitted disease worldwide and can result in pre-malignancies or overt malignancies of the skin and mucosal surfaces. HPV-related illnesses are an important personal and public health problem causing physical, mental, sexual and financial detriments.

Maturation of the human papillomavirus 16 capsid.

mBio 2014 Aug 5;5(4):e01104-14. Epub 2014 Aug 5.

Imaging Sciences Laboratory, Center for Information Technology, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland, USA

Papillomaviruses are a family of nonenveloped DNA viruses that infect the skin or mucosa of their vertebrate hosts. The viral life cycle is closely tied to the differentiation of infected keratinocytes. Papillomavirus virions are released into the environment through a process known as desquamation, in which keratinocytes lose structural integrity prior to being shed from the surface of the skin.

Acquired progressive lymphangioma in the inguinal area mimicking giant condyloma acuminatum.

Cutis 2014 Jun;93(6):316-9

The Second Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, 88 Jiefang Rd, Hangzhou, Zhejiang 310009, China.

Lymphangioma is a benign proliferation of the lymphatic vessels that accounts for approximately 4% of vascular malformations and 26% of benign vascular tumors. Compared to those arising in nongenital areas, lymphangiomas of the vulva and genital areas are more hyperplastic, possibly due to the loose connective tissue, which can cause a cauliflowerlike appearance and may easily be misdiagnosed as genital warts or molluscum contagiosum. We report a case of acquired progressive lymphangioma (APL) of the inguinal area that mimicked giant condyloma acuminatum and showed favorable results following surgical excision. Read More

Department of Family Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Shreveport, LA 71130, USA.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common viral cause of cancer, and is responsible for 5% of cancers worldwide. Following demonstration of the causative link between HPV and cervical cancer, HPV has been shown to be associated with several anogenital malignancies and with oral pharyngeal cancers. HPV-related anal and oral pharyngeal disease is rising in incidence and includes anal warts and neoplasia, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, and oral pharyngeal neoplasia. Read More

Evaluation of a novel broad-spectrum PCR-multiplex genotyping assay for identification of cutaneous wart-associated human papillomavirus types.

J Clin Microbiol 2010 May 17;48(5):1706-11. Epub 2010 Mar 17.

DDL Diagnostic Laboratory, Fonteijnenburghlaan 7, 2275 CX Voorburg, Netherlands.

A large number of human papillomavirus (HPV) types, distributed over five papillomavirus genera, are detectable in the skin. HPV types belonging to the alpha, gamma, and mu genera have been detected in cutaneous warts. A state-of-the-art HPV genotyping assay for these cutaneous wart-associated HPV types does not exist although warts constitute a highly prevalent skin condition, especially in children (33%) and organ transplant recipients (45%).

Dermatologic manifestations of HPV in HIV-infected individuals.

Curr HIV/AIDS Rep 2009 Aug;6(3):130-8

University of Pennsylvania, Department of Dermatology, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA.

Dermatologic human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in HIV patients manifests as both anogenital and nongenital skin disease. Anogenital HPV-related disease includes benign condyloma acuminata, the most common cutaneous manifestation of genital HPV infection; intermediate malignancy or premalignant conditions including giant condyloma acuminata (also called Buschke-Loewenstein tumor), anal intraepithelial neoplasia, penile intraepithelial neoplasia, and vaginal or vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia; and frankly malignant disease including Bowen's disease and invasive anal, penile, or vulvar carcinoma. Cutaneous HPV-related disease in nongenital skin is also increased in HIV-positive patients, in the form of benign common warts, epidermodysplasia verruciformis-like skin lesions, and nonmelanoma skin cancers.

Verruca vulgaris of the vulva in children and adults: a nonvenereal type of vulvar wart.

Am J Surg Pathol 2007 Apr;31(4):529-35

Department of Pathology, The Ohio State University Medical Center, Columbus, OH, USA.

Condyloma acuminata are common lesions of the vulva in adults, and associated with infection by human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 and 11, which are acquired via sexual contact. The detection of an HPV 6/11 condyloma in the genital tract of a child, therefore, raises the question of sexual abuse. In this study, 29 genital warts in girls less than 5 years of age were examined for nongenital and genital tract HPVs by in situ hybridization. Read More
