Appearance of Verruca Over Linear Verrucous Epidermal Nevus - An Example of Locus Minoris Resistentiae: A Report of Three Cases.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2018 Sep-Oct;9(5):334-337

Department of Pathology, JSS Medical College and Hospital, JSS University, Mysuru, Karnataka, India.

Locus minoris resistentiae (LMR) is a site of the body that offers lesser resistance than the rest of the body to the onset of disease. It can be congenital or acquired. Areas of cutaneous mosaicism such as epidermal nevi can act as congenital LMR, leading to the development of inflammatory skin conditions or skin tumors on these. Read More

Verruciform and Condyloma-like Squamous Proliferations in the Anogenital Region.

Authors:
May P Chan

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2018 Sep 11. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

From the Department of Pathology, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor.

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 Papilloma Virus (HPV) and genitourinary cancers: a narrative review.

Minerva Urol Nefrol 2018 Aug 29. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Urology Unit, Santa Chiara Hospital, Trento, Italy: 2 Urology Unit, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Introduction: Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted pathogen and its potential role in the genesis of several diseases such as cervical, head and neck, anal and penile cancers, is now largely recognized. Aim of this review article is evaluate and summarize the state of the art of HPV-related uro-genital cancers, focusing on the potentially innovative methods for the diagnosis of infection that should be used to improve viral causative detection and prevent its diffusion through sexual intercourses.

Evidence Acquisition: The initial search was carried out by using the Medline and the Google Scholar computerized databases through the selected key-words to identify the more recent literature on HPV epidemiology and its relationship with the main relevant urinary tract cancers. Read More

A new species of Puddle Frog, genus Phrynobatrachus (Amphibia: Anura: Phrynobatrachidae) from Ghana.

CSIR-Forestry Research Institute of Ghana, Kumasi, Ghana Wildlife and Range Management Department, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana.

We describe a new species of Phrynobatrachus from the eastern part of the Upper Guinea forest region, Ghana, West Africa. Morphologically, the new species can be distinguished from all of its congeners by the combination of a slender body, short and pointed snout, a relatively warty dorsum, a black-spotted throat in both sexes, a gular flap in males, a dark spotted chest, a white-greyish venter with occasional blackish spots, rudimentary pedal webbing, none to slightly dilated finger tips and strongly delated toe tips, presence of both inner and outer metatarsal tubercles and absence of a dark face mask, eyelid tubercles and longer dorsal ridges. We collected mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence data from the 16S rRNA gene to measure the genetic diversity of the new species, and to estimate phylogenetic relationships. Read More

Synchronous diversification of Sulawesi's iconic artiodactyls driven by recent geological events.

Proc Biol Sci 2018 Apr;285(1876)

The Palaeogenomics & Bio-Archaeology Research Network, Research Laboratory for Archaeology and History of Art, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3QY, UK

The high degree of endemism on Sulawesi has previously been suggested to have vicariant origins, dating back to 40 Ma. Recent studies, however, suggest that much of Sulawesi's fauna assembled over the last 15 Myr. Here, we test the hypothesis that more recent uplift of previously submerged portions of land on Sulawesi promoted diversification and that much of its faunal assemblage is much younger than the island itself.
