Predisposition to papillomaviruses epidermodysplasia verruciformis

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is characterized by selective susceptibility to infections caused by skin-tropic oncogenic papillomaviruses (HPVs) of the B1 group, leading to an increase in the risk of epithelial skin cancer. It was first described clinically in 1922 (Jablonska & Majewski 1994). Autosomal recessive mutations in two adjacent genes, EVER1 and EVER2, were described in 2002 in three and two kindreds, respectively (Ramoz et al 2002). One patient with compound heterozygous mutations in EVER1 and another with a homozygous mutation in EVER2 were recently described (Tate et al 2004, Sun et al 2005). EVER genes belong to the transmembrane channel-like (TMC) family of genes, encoding proteins with eight membrane-spanning domains, thought to act as ion channels, transporters, or their associated modifiers (Kurima et al 2003, Keresztes et al 2003). The TMC family was first discovered by positional cloning of human inherited deafness (Kurima et al 2002). EVER1 TMC6 and...

Low Grade Urothelial Tumors Grade I Papilloma Papillary Urothelial Neoplasm of Low Malignant Potential

Another reason is that the DNA content of these tumors is at or near diploid, and so the nuclear chromatin of these cells is essentially identical to that of the normal mucosa. The low grade lesions exhibit a spectrum of features from changes identical to benign urothelium (as in papilloma) to changes of neoplasia (as in low grade urothelial carcinoma) that, in some instances, may be distinguished from benign conditions (Figs. 3.2, 3.3). In the lowest grade lesions, nuclear crowding is the first clue that the epithelium is abnormal (Figs. 3.4-3.6).

Management of Inverting Papilloma

The only reason to change management philosophy depends on equivalent or improved management techniques. Endoscopic diagnosis and surgery can improve our management of inverted papilloma. The use of endoscopic sinus surgery by experienced surgeons expands the management of inverted papilloma and allows for individualization of treatment. Many authors do not advocate conservative therapy for the treatment of any inverting papilloma because of the high risk of recurrence and the effectiveness of a medial max-illectomy lateral rhinotomy. The nasal neoplastic disease entity known as inverting papilloma (IP), also called inverted papilloma, has long been a topic of intense debate because of its recurrent, destructive, and malignant potential. Traditionally, these tumors are approached externally to ensure adequate margins of resection. Intranasal approaches have been fraught with recurrences because these tumors are usually bulky, creating a difficult exposure. However, otolaryngologists...

Bethesda 2001 Pap Smear Report

HPV testing with referral to colposcopy if positive for high-risk HPV type if negative for high-risk HPV type, then repeat cytology in 12 months B. Evaluation of ASC-US. Reflex HPV testing is the preferred approach. Reflex testing refers to concurrent collection of cytology and HPV samples with actual testing for HPV only if indicated by cytology results. If liquid-based cytology is used, reflex HPV testing can be performed on the same specimen.

Pap smear report

Conventional Pap smear, liquid based cytology, or other. 5. A description of any ancillary testing or automated review that was performed (eg, human papillomavirus HPV , AutoPap). B. Specimen adequacy. The adequacy of the Pap smear specimen is typically reported as follows. 1. Unsatisfactory. Smears that are unsatisfactory for evaluation may have scanty cellular material or may be obscured by inflammation, blood, or debris so that more than 75 percent of the cells are uninterpretable. Unsatisfactory Pap smears should always be repeated in two to four months. If the cells are obscured by inflammation, an attempt should be made to clear the inflammatory process (eg, treat cervicitis or vaginitis) prior to repeating the smear.

Genital Warts

Genital warts, which are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), are one of the most common STDs. Some people who have been infected with HPV never get genital warts, but they can still spread the infection. As with other kinds of warts elsewhere on the body, genital warts start small and soft and become hard and rough-surfaced, often developing stalks. Multiple warts often grow in the same area, creating a cauliflowerlike effect. The growth is rapid, especially in men with weakened immune systems for example, men who have AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). The good news is that the warts usually disappear on their own after a few months. The bad news is that they tend to return, even if they have been removed. Genital warts can be treated (but not cured) with prescription creams or gels such as imiquimod or podofilox. These medications are applied directly to the affected area. The warts also can be removed with surgery, which is done using a local anesthetic, cryotherapy...

Papilloma

Sebaceous Horn Cysts Histopathology

INTRODUCTION A papilloma is any lesion that is papillomatous in growth pattern that is a smooth, rounded, or pedunculated elevation. The squamous papilloma is a generic term for any papilloma of nonviral origin. Also known as a fibroepithelial polyp, acrochordon, or skin tag, this neoplasm commonly occurs on the eyelid, neck, axilla, and groin. This is a benign tumor of squamous epithelial origin, and this is the most common benign lesion found on the eyelid, representing 15 to 30 of all benign lesions on the lids. It can be seen at any age but occurs most frequently in patients over the age of 30 years. CLINICAL PRESENTATION Papillomas on the eyelid present as small 2 to 3 mm flesh-colored sessile or pedunculated masses. They may be single or multiple. Occasionally they can develop on the palpebral or bulbar conjunctiva. They typically have thickened hyperkeratotic epithelium and may show multiple finger-like projections. On close examination it may be possible to identify a central...

Preface to the Second Edition

The new edition of this atlas integrates all significant advances made in the past 15 years in molecular pathology, tumor virology, and genetics of cervical cancer. It emphasizes the importance of these advances in facilitating its pathological diagnosis and in optimizing clinical management and prognosis. A new chapter on immunohistochemistry has been added, which includes refined detection methods, e.g., the overexpression of p16INK4a as a molecular marker in the early differential diagnosis of premalignant lesions. The section on etiology and pathogenesis in human papillomavirus-induced neoplasia has been incorporated to represent new insights into the sequences of cellular and nuclear deregulation at the molecular level. All chapters have been revised to include the newest advances and relevant experiences in how to interpret and manage cervical disease they are supported by the addition of 35 new microphotographic illustrations. The tumor nomenclature is adapted to the latest...

Risk Factors and Cancer

Both DNA and RNA viruses are responsible for about 5 of human cancer but are a more common causes of cancer in animals where they play a central role in the identification of oncogenes.25'26 About 5 of adult T cell leukemias lymphomas are due to human lymphotropic virus type I27 while Epstein-Barr virus accounts for 10-15 of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma (almost all children in central Africa and 20 of cases occurring elsewhere), 35-50 of Hodgkin's disease, and 40-70 of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (especially in southern Chinese).28 Hepatitis B virus accounts for 40-60 of hepatocellular carcinoma and hepatitis C virus for 20-30 .29 Some subtypes of the human papilloma viruses (HPV16 and HPV18) account for 90 of cervical cancer. HPV infection is now recognized to be a sexually transmitted disease with special risk from early sexual exposure before the cervix is fully mature. HPV viruses cause benign warts and may be involved in cancers of the oral cavity and upper respiratory...

BGlandular cell abnormalities

The LSIL category includes changes consistent with human papillomavirus (HPV), mild dysplasia, or CIN I (grade 1 cervical intraepithelial neoplasia). HSIL includes changes consistent with moderate or severe dysplasia, CIN II or III, and carcinoma in situ (CIS). 5. Hyperkeratosis or parakeratosis on an otherwise negative Pap smear is not a marker for significant CIN and may be related to infection or trauma with inflammation, such as from use of a diaphragm. The Pap smear should be repeated in 6 to 12 months.

Preface to the First Edition

During the past decade our understanding of the histopathology of the cervix uteri has changed greatly. Because of the lifestyles of the modern permissive society, cervical viral infections have become epidemic, resulting in inflammatory and precancerous lesions that were uncommon but now are seen mainly in the younger age groups with increasing frequency. Then too, progress in molecular biology and immunohistochemis-try has enabled us to distinguish subtypes of papilloma viruses, to proceed in understanding their action within the genome, and to trace the infected metaplastic and neo-plastic-transformed cells to their histogenetic origins. The resultant refined classification of cervical neoplasias has helped to predict clinical outcome and to choose type of therapy.

Special circumstances

When an infectious organism is identified, the patient should be contacted to determine if she is symptomatic. Antibiotic therapy is indicated for symptomatic infection. Asymptomatic trichomonas infection should be treated. Most patients with only reactive changes due to inflammation will not have an organism identified on Pap smear. The Pap smear does not need to be repeated unless the patient is HIV positive. D. Management after colposcopy biopsy. Colposcopy biopsy of women with ASC-US will either yield a histologic abnormality (eg, CIN II or III), which should be treated as appropriate or show no abnormal findings. In the latter case, if HPV testing was not performed or showed a low-risk type, then follow-up cytological testing in 12 months is recommended. 1. Management of women who test positive for high-risk HPV types, but have CIN I or less on colposcopy biopsy consists of HPV testing at 12 months postprocedure with repeat colposcopic referral if...

Evaluation of Eyelid Lesions

Fluid Filled Cyst Eyelid

From several recent large series looking at the frequency of eyelid lesions benign processes account for approximately 70 to 75 of all lesions, and malignant neoplasms for 25 to 30 (1-5). Among the benign lesions the most frequent diagnoses are squamous papilloma (26 ), nevus (22 ), cysts (20 ), seborrheic keratosis (13 ), vascular lesions (9 ), and neural lesions (< 1 ). The most common malignant tumor on the eyelid is the basal cell carcinoma followed in rapidly descending order by squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma. Other rare tumors such as Kaposi's sarcoma, adnexal carcinomas, and Merkel cell tumor are occasionally seen, as are metastatic cancers. One large series of nearly 1100 malignant eyelid tumors from China showed the frequencies of basal cell and sebaceous cell carcinomas to be nearly equal at 38 and 32 , respectively, quite different from the usually quoted values from the Western literature. However, most other studies give the...

Negative colposcopyendocervical curettage

Occasionally, normal appearing endometrial cells will be reported on a Pap smear. The presence of these cells is reported only in women > 40 years of age. In these cases, endometrial biopsy should be performed. E. Follow-up after treatment. Follow-up Pap smears are recommended every three to four months for the first year after any treatment for dysplasia. Women with cervical dysplasia present at the LEEP or cone margin or in the concomitant endocervical curettage also need follow-up colposcopy with endocervical sampling every six months for one year. Routine surveillance can be resumed if there is no recurrence after the first year. Surveillance consists of Pap smears on a yearly basis for most women and on a twice-yearly basis for high-risk women (ie, HIV positive).

The Cell Cycle and Cancer

The G1 checkpoint is often deficient in human tumors, often due to deregulation or absence of the Rb protein. Although germline mutations in the RB gene cause the highly penetrant hereditary retinoblastoma,84 the frequency of RB mutation is low among the sporadic cancers however, it has been reported in osteosarcomas, small cell lung carcinomas, and breast carcinomas. Rb protein inactivation, found in a wide variety of human cancers,85 may be the result of three possible causes. First, the Rb protein can be sequestered from its physiological partners, when bound to viral oncoproteins, such as the SV40 T antigen, the adenovirus E1A protein, or the papilloma E7 protein.86 These events are frequently observed in human cervical tumors. The second cause, and probably the most common one, is the

Eyelid Lesions and Tissues of Origin

Hair Follicle Nevus

Of the benign lesions derived from the epidermis many can look rather similar clinically. Some may remain epidermal in location, but many extend into the underlying dermis. Epidermal lesions include the papilloma, actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, inverted follicular keratosis, ichthyosis, keratoacanthoma, lentigo, milia, molluscum contagiosum, and acquired melanosis. When epidermal cells become buried beneath the surface, keratin can accumulate to form an epidermoid cyst.

Histopathologic Terminology

Hyperkeratotic Seborrheic Keratosis

Koilocytes are vacuolated keratinocytes with eccentrically placed, basophilic, shrunken nuclei surrounded by clear halos. They are found in the upper spinous and granular cell layers of the epidermis in human papillomavirus infections (verruca vulgaris, in the eyelid). Papillomatosis Papillomatosis is characterized histologically by abnormally elongated epidermis and papillary dermis resulting in irregular undulation of the epidermal surface. Papillomatosis is seen most commonly in seborrheic keratosis and verruca vulgaris (shown).

Molluscum Contagiosum Dimple Warts

Warts Pubic Area

Molluscum warts occur characteristically in small children and in young adults, although they may be seen occasionally in any age group. They present as single or grouped papules, and parents will often indicate there was a single lesion present for some time. The incubation period after exposure has been estimated to vary from 14 days to 6 months. Molluscum contagiosum (MC) virus is a member of the poxvirus family and is not related to human papilloma virus, the cause of common verrucous warts.

Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

Conduct a pelvic examination. Observe the patient's external genitalia for signs of inflammation, bleeding, discharge, or local skin or epithelial changes. Observe the internal genitalia. The normal cervix is pink and nontender, has no lesions, and has a closed os. Cervical tissue with cervical cancer appears as a large reddish growth or deep ulcerating crater before any symptoms are experienced lesions are firm and friable. The Pap smear is done before the bimanual examination. Palpate for motion tenderness of the cervix (Chandelier's sign) a positive Chandelier's sign (pain on movement) usually indicates an infection. Also examine the size, consistency (hardness may reflect invasion by neoplasm), shape, mobility (cervix should be freely movable), tenderness, and presence of masses of the uterus and adnexa. Conduct a rectal exam palpate for abnormalities of contour, motility, and the placement of adjacent structures. Nodular thickenings of the uterosacral and...

Primary Nursing Diagnosis

Treatment depends on the stage of the cancer, the woman's age, and concern for future child-bearing. Preinvasive lesions (CIS) can be treated by conization, cryosurgery, laser surgery, or simple hysterectomy (if the patient's reproductive capacity is not an issue). All conservative treatments require frequent follow-up by Pap tests and colposcopy because a greater level of risk is always present for the woman who has had CIS. A cone-shaped piece of tissue is removed from the cervix after epithelial involvement is clearly outlined as described with the cone biopsy. The cone includes all the abnormal and some normal tissue. Following this procedure, the woman can still have children. The major complication is postoperative bleeding.

Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

Make sure the patient knows all the postprocedure complications. Provide a phone number to call if any complications occur. Ensure that the patient understands the need for ongoing Pap smears if appropriate. Vaginal cytological studies are recommended at 4-month intervals for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually.

Examination of the Nose

Nasal Speculum Exam

Instruments are best avoided in children. A good anterior view of the nose can be obtained simply by pressing on the tip of the nose. In this case, a clear view is obtained of a pedunculated papilloma of the nasal vestibule (arrow). Fig. 1.44 Examining a child. Instruments are best avoided in children. A good anterior view of the nose can be obtained simply by pressing on the tip of the nose. In this case, a clear view is obtained of a pedunculated papilloma of the nasal vestibule (arrow).

Fibrocystic Breast DRG Category 276

The College of American Pathologists has categorized the types of fibrocystic breast condition according to the associated increased risk for subsequent invasive breast cancer and the particular histologic (microscopic) change that is present. These types include the following no increased risk (nonproliferative changes, including microcysts, adenosis, mild hyperplasia, fibroadenoma, fibrosis, duct, apocrine metaplasia, and gross cysts) slightly increased risk (relative risk, 1.5 to 2 proliferative changes without atypia, including moderate hyperplasia and papilloma) moderately increased risk (relative risk, 4 to 5 proliferative changes with atypia or atypical hyperplasia) and significantly increased risk (relative risk, 8 to 10 ductal and lobular carcinoma in situ).

Enhancer Binding Protein AP1 aka Jun Fos

It would be more ideal to study the effects of amino acid substitutions in the transcriptional activation domain in a system where no background binding of endogenous transcription factor interferes with assessing the performance of the mutants. Therefore I fused the N-terminal transcription activation domains of the mutants to the DNA-binding domain of the bovine papilloma virus E2 protein. There is no endogenous DNA-binding protein in the cells tested that specifically binds the E2 protein, therefore all of the DNA-bind-ing and transcriptional activities observed come from the mutants tested. Figure 5.5A diagrams the placement of the alanine (A) and aspartic acid (D) substitution for Serine 73 (S) within the transcriptional activation domain A1 of c-Jun. Gel shift extracts prepared from cells transfected with these constructs are shown in Figure 5.5B. This experiment shows a potentially significant effect. The complex is seen as a doublet, with both upper and lower band species...

Clinical evaluation

Human papillomavirus is the most important factor contributing to the development of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and cervical cancer. Other epidemiologic risk factors associated with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and cervical cancer include history of sexual intercourse at an early age, multiple sexual partners, sexually transmitted diseases (including chlamydia), and smoking. Additional risk factors include a male partner or partners who have had multiple sexual partners previous history of squamous dysplasias of the cervix, vagina, or vulva and immunosuppression.

Treatment of latestage carcinoma lIb or later

Approximately 35 of patients will have persistent or recurrent disease. A common approach includes examinations and Pap tests every 3-4 months for the first 3 years, decreasing to twice yearly in the fourth and fifth years, with and chest X-rays annually for up to 5 years.

Malignant Nasal Tumors

Nasal Tumors

A nasal polyp that does not appear gray and opalescent should arouse suspicion, as should a polyp that bleeds spontaneously. A solid-looking hyperemic polyp may be an inverted papilloma. Granulation tissue in the nose may be malignant granuloma or carcinoma, and biopsy of any suspicious nasal lesion is necessary.

Malignant Tumors of the Cervix and Uterus

Invasive cervical carcinoma is the third most common malignancy of the female genital tract. Early detection of cervical carcinoma due to gynecologic examination and the Pap smear has led to a significant reduction in mortality. At histology, squamous cell carcinoma is found in over 90 of cases. Imaging is not used for tumor detection, but for staging of cytologically proven disease. Transvaginal ultrasound is usually the first imaging modality employed. Additional cross-sectional imaging is especially useful if the tumor volume is large. MRI was shown to be superior to CT in the local staging of cervical carcinoma.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases Introduction

Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) are a diverse group of viral, bacterial, protozoal, and ectoparasitic infections that have a common route of transmission through sexual intercourse. Infectious organisms associated with STDs include Chlamydia trachomatis Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis, trichomoniasis syphilis herpes simplex papillomavirus (genital warts) genital herpes and HIV. Infection by each of the above organisms has its own pattern of clinical patterns medications treatments prognosis transmission dynamics host response to infection and patterns of sexual contact.

Endocervical cells not present The presence

Of metaplastic and endocervical cells indicates adequate sampling of the transformation zone of the cervix, the area at risk for neoplasia. Most women without an endocervical transformation zone component present should be screened with a repeat Pap test in 12 months. However, repeat testing in six months is advised in the following situations a. A previous Pap smear result of ASC-US or worse without three subsequent negative Pap smears. b. A previous Pap smear with an unexplained glandular abnormality.

Papillary Squamous Cell Carcinoma [80523

Poorly Differentiated Invasive Carcinoma

Papillary squamous cell carcinoma is another rare variant of cervical squamous cell carcinoma, presenting the gross and histological appearance of a benign papilloma undergoing dysplastic cellular change (compare Figs. 128 and 129). Beneath the papillary dysplasia, strands of invasive carcinoma can be detected (Randall et al. 1986 Brinck et al. 2000). Diagnosis of invasion, therefore, depends upon examining the entire papillary lesion.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Differential Diagnosis For Lymphocytosis

INTRODUCTION Squamous cell carcinoma is a malignant tumor that most commonly affects elderly, fair-skinned individuals. It arises from keratinocytes of the epidermis. Unlike the more common basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma tends to arise in precancerous areas of skin alteration or in areas of skin damaged by chronic sun exposure, ionizing radiation, carcinogens (e.g., arsenic), psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) therapy for psoriasis, and the human papilloma virus. Intrinsic factors that may contribute to its development include xeroderma pigmentosum, oculocutaneous albinism, and immunodeficiency. Chronic skin dermatoses, inflammation, ulceration, and contracted scars also are associated with the development of this tumor. In fact, scarring of the skin is the most common intrinsic factor leading to this tumor in black patients. Lymphatic spread and perineural invasion are possible. DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS The differential diagnosis includes basal cell carcinoma, sebaceous...

Adenosquamous Carcinoma [85603

Squamous Cell Carcinoma Prognosis

The incidence of adenosquamous carcinoma (Figs. 210,211) has significantly increased during the past decades, particularly in younger women (Adcock et al. 1982). Since it originates from the bipotential reserve cells, and since it is frequently associated with HPV infection type 18 (Smotkin et al. 1986) or the equally frequent type 16 (Tase et al. 1988), this increase is explainable by hormonal overstimulation and the resulting increased susceptibility of the reserve cells already mentioned. Besides, the endogenous hormonal overstimulation during pregnancy may explain why 50 of all invasive cervical carcinomas in pregnant women are of the adenosquamous type (Glucksmann 1957). Furthermore, refined histological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural methods have helped to recognize mixed epithelial patterns more readily. For instance, using these methods, glassy cell carcinomas of the endocervix 8015 3 , characterized by large cells with abundant finely granular, ground-glass-type...

Sebaceous Cell Carcinoma

Cutaneous Horn Formation

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS The differential diagnosis includes basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, papilloma, blepharitis, chalazion, ocular cicatricial pemphigoid, cutaneous horns, discoid lupus, pyogenic granulomas, lacrimal sac tumors, and superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis.

Inflammation of the Larynx Laryngitis

Severe Laryngomalacia

Fig. 4.75 Juvenile laryngeal papilloma. Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis must be excluded in a hoarse infant or child, for if the hoarseness is ignored, stridor will develop as papillomas accumulate in the laryngeal airway. Nevertheless, vocal cord nodules (screamers' nodes) are the commonest cause of hoarseness in children. In juvenile papillomas, multiple wart-like excrescences develop, usually before the age of five, mostly on or around the vocal cords. Recurrence follows removal, but fortunately eventual spontaneous regression is usual. The cause is now established as the human papilloma virus (types 6 and 11), which produces the disease in children who have an HLA-linked T-cell deficit. Management consists of regular microlaryngoscopy with removal of papillomas using the CO2 laser or laryngeal microdebrider. The aim is not to achieve radical removal of all the papillomas, but just to maintain a safe airway and as good a voice as possible while awaiting spontaneous resolution,...

Incidence

IP typically occurs within a peak age range of 50 to 70 years, although it has been found in children as young as 8 years old.7 It has a male preponderance, as shown in one large series, in which 83 of patients were men. IP is typically unilateral, but it may be bilateral in less than 10 of cases.8 The etiology of IP is unknown nonetheless, both human papillomavirus (HPV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) have been demonstrated in IP specimens.9'10 Squamous cell carcinoma occurs in association with IP in less than 2 to 56 of cases, although no study with more than 50 cases had a greater than 30 incidence of carcinoma, and most had less than 15 .8,11-17 Malignancy is often associated with aggressive growth, including intracranial, orbital, or mastoid invasion.18-20 Moreover, Cummings and Goodman4 noted a few cases in which transitional cell carcinomas were reclassified as IP. Clearly, the marked atypia found in aggressive IP can be misleading with regard to the true incidence of carcinoma,...

Specific History

Common warts are caused by human papillomavirus infection clinical lesions develop after a latent period of weeks to several months. They have a peak incidence in late childhood and adolescence and then the occurrence sharply declines. They may, however, be found in all age groups. Usually patients will recall a single lesion, which is often interpreted at first as a splinter or thorn.

Background

Several articles have showed the benefit of extranasal medial maxillectomy versus intranasal removal of inverted papilloma affecting either the ethmoid or maxillary sinuses, or both.1-6 Before the advent of the use of endoscopes for nasal and sinus diagnosis and surgery, there was no better way to control inverting papilloma, hence the need for extranasal medial maxillectomy. Treatment trials using a Caldwell-Luc operation and intranasal removal were not as successful as the extranasal medial maxillectomy.7'8 Extranasal medial maxillectomy recurrence rates were 9 to 42 versus 10 to 100 intranasally.2-10 Adding to the problem was information from Vrabec6 that a follow-up of at least 6 years was necessary to ensure local control. These data led to reflection on why extranasal surgery recurrences in some cases were as low as 10 and as high as 42 and on why intranasal surgery recurrences were as low as 10 and as high as 100 . The answers lie in the location of tumor, the surgeries done,...

Discussion

Many investigators do not advocate conservative therapy for the treatment of any inverting papilloma because of the high risk of recurrence and because of the effectiveness of a medial maxillectomy lateral rhinotomy. Stankiewicz and Girgis11 believe that endoscopic treatment is feasible because of the pathology of the tumor. In 1971, Hyams demonstrated that inverting papilloma is primarily a lateral wall disease, and most commonly involves the ethmoid sinus and maxillary antrum. Endoscopic excision should be biopsy-controlled to ensure complete excision, as opposed to limited transnasal excision.11 During endoscopic excision, if any unreachable areas of tumor are observed, the procedure should be converted to a medial maxillectomy. Endoscopic resections had an overall recurrence rate of 17 in the Waitz and Wigand12 series of papillomas limited to the nasal cavity and maxillary antrum. Endoscopes have a role in the diagnosis and postoperative follow-up evaluation of all inverting...

Negative Life Events

Building upon these findings, other investigators have examined the clinical relevance of negative life events in HIV-positive women. Pereira and colleagues (2003a) observed that over a 1-year follow-up in HIVpositive women, greater negative life events during the 6 months prior to follow-up were related to an increased risk for symptomatic genital herpes recurrences, after controlling for indicators of HIV disease status and behavioral factors. These findings remained unchanged after controlling for herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody titers at study entry. Greater negative life events were also associated with persistence or progression of cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL), a pre-clinical condition to invasive cervical cancer, over the subsequent year (Pereira et al., 2003b). The association between negative life events and the persistence or progression of this preclinical condition in women at risk for AIDS was unchanged after...

Historical Aspects

In 1854, Ward1 first described a nasal papilloma. Billroth reported on a recurring nasal papilloma 1 year later, which he called villi-form cancer many others began to look at this peculiar entity that appeared to invert,1-6 as examined microscopically. In his landmark paper in 1971, Hyams1 clarified the confUsion regarding the characteristic growth behavior of IP by demonstrating the prognostic significance of certain histologic features. Hyams showed that increased mitotic activity, hypercellularity, pleomorphism, and atypia are associated with more aggressive and recurrent tumors. Furthermore, these histologic findings are associated with an increased tendency toward synchronous and metachronous carcinoma. When surface keratinization and dyskeratosis are found, there is increased suspicion for squamous cell carcinoma.1

Assessment

Twenty observers made 180 assessments on twenty seven patients. The observers included consultants, registrars, housmen, and students, and the patients were volunteers with a variety of complaints who were chosen when an opportunity presented for several observers to see the patient. The scores were made quickly and easily, much of the information being already obtained from a normal consultation. The scores in this series ranged from 0.25 scored by a man with severe asthma to 1.0 scored by a man awaiting admission for excision of a tongue papilloma.

Cervical Cancer

Papanicolaou smears decrease the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer. Give female patients a Pap smear if they are due, even if they present with an unrelated complaint. Follow up any dysplastic Pap smear with colposcopy-directed biopsies and endocervical curettage. If the Pap smear shows microinvasive cancer, proceed to conization. Frankly invasive cancer needs surgery and or radiation. 2. Multiple sexual partners (role of human papillomavirus and possibly herpes) or coitus with a promiscuous person Postmenopausal bleeding is cancer until proved otherwise endometrial cancer is the most common cancer If) present in this fashion (fourth most common cancer in women). Get an endometrial biopsy for any patient with postmenopausal bleeding (as well as a Pap smear and endocervical curettage). Any woman with unexplained gynecologic bleeding that persists needs a Pap smear, endocervical curettage, and endometrial biopsy.

Terminology Historic

Historically, terminology describing urinary tract lesions has been almost as confusing as lymphoma categories. A popular histologic grading system divides the neoplasms into three groups Grade I (low), Grade II (medium), and Grade III (high). In those systems that add a fourth grade, equivalence may be accomplished by placing papillomas in the Grade I category, the low grade lesions in Grade II, etc. Including papillomas with Grade I lesions may be justified by the evidence that these benign appearing papil-lomas may progress to higher grade carcinomas, or at least identify the patient as at risk for subsequent development of a high grade lesion. From a patient management standpoint, all papillary lesions of the urinary bladder can be considered cancerous. However, the current general opinion, that the most treacherous lesions are the high grade sessile (flat) lesions, capable of quickly invading, makes the low grade papillary lesions less noteworthy than previously considered....

Diagnosis

Trichomonads are often seen on conventional Papanicolaou smears, but false positive results are not uncommon (30 ). Thus, asymptomatic women with Trichomonas identified on conventional Pap smear should not be treated until the diagnosis is confirmed by wet mount. Treatment of asymptomatic women with trichomonads noted on liquid-based cervical cytology is recommended.

Preventive Services

Preventive services may involve early prenatal care to prevent babies with low birth weight and infant deaths reduction of tobacco use, dietary fat intake, and high blood pressure in an effort to prevent heart disease and stroke mammography, clinical breast examination, Pap tests, fecal occult blood tests, and digital rectal examinations to detect and treat cancers before they spread increasing use of condoms among sexually active men with multiple partners to prevent STDs and increasing immunization to help eliminate infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, diphtheria, polio, rubella, and measles.

Benign Tumors

Papilloma Stage

Squamous papillomas 8052 0 of the ectocervix (Figs. 91-94) occur predominantly in young women and are mainly caused by infection with low-risk HPV (LR-HPV) types, such as types 6 and 11 (Ward et al. 1992 see Table 3). Some may be inverted, hence their surfaces are flat. Histologically they consist of thick layers of stratified squamous epithelium with elongated rete pegs that extend deeply into the lamina propria (Fig. 91). The basal membrane is intact, the epithelial layers are well differentiated, and acantho-sis is usually pronounced. Some lesions may also contain koilocytes in the upper layers. Mitoses are rare. Besides the flat, inverted type of papilloma, others may present as exophytic condylomatous lesions 7672 0 and closely resemble the condylomata of the vulva and vagina (Fig. 92) or form verrucae covered by parakeratosis or hyperkeratosis (Fig. 93). These papillomas may be sessile or pedunculated. Since these lesions reflect acute virus-producing infections of low-risk...

Melanocytic Nevus

Intradermal Nevus Eyelid

HISTOPATHOLOGY Melanocytic nevi are composed of nevus cells, which are melanocytes that have lost their long dendritic processes. Nevus cells are oval to cuboidal, have clear to pale eosinophilic cytoplasm, and contain a variable amount of melanin. The nevus cells form nests, which often coalesce when they are in the dermis. Melanocytic nevi may have discrete nests of nevus cells at the dermoepidermal junction (junctional melanocytic nevus), both at the dermoepidermal junction and within the dermis (compound melanocytic nevus), or confined within the dermis (intradermal melanocytic nevus, shown below). On the eyelid, compound nevi may be papillomatous with a seborrheic keratosis-like appearance to their epidermis. DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS The differential diagnosis includes lentigo maligna, malignant melanoma, neurofibroma, balloon cell nevus, papilloma, seborrheic keratosis, inverted follicular keratosis, oculodermal melanocytosis, dermatofibroma, pigmented basal cell carcinoma, and...

Laboratory tests

Test for syphilis, rubella antibody titer, urinalysis, culture, Pap smear, cervical cultures for gonorrhea and Chlamydia, and hepatitis B surface antigen (HbsAg). 2. During labor, the CBC, urinalysis and RPR are repeated. The HBSAG is repeated for high-risk patients. A clot of blood is placed on hold.

Premalignant Lesions

Hpv And Mild Dysplasia

High-risk papillomaviruses are generally associated with preneoplastic or neoplastic anogenital lesions. Low-risk HPV types are usually found in benign epithelial lesions as, for example, genital warts (condylomata acuminata), but not in malignant lesions. For the group of probable HR-HPV types, the association is not yet confirmed they have so far been observed only in incidental preneoplastic lesions. Cervical carcinogenesis is thought to be a multistep event, with HPV as a necessary, but not sufficient carcinogenic agent (Walboomers et al. 1999). From various studies it could be concluded that high parity, smoking (Wyatt et al. 2001), immunodeficiency (Frisch et al. 2000) and, less consistently, long-term use of oral contraceptives are cofac-tors that may modulate the risk of progression from HPV infection to cervical cancer (Pater et al. 1988 Elson et al. 2000 Moodley et al. 2003 also reviewed in Castellsague and Munoz 2003). Immunological factors may play an important role in the...

Malignancies

Loss of either the receptor or the ligand resulted in animals devoid of germ cells. In postnatal testes, c-kit has been found to be expressed in Leydig cells and spermatogonia, whereas SCF was expressed in Sertoli cells (Love-land and Schlatt, 1997). Testicular tumors develop from Leydig cells with high frequency in transgenic mice expressing human papilloma virus 16 (HPV16) E6 and E7 oncogenes (Kondoh et al. 1991, 1994). These tumors express both c-kit and SCF, suggesting that an autocrine loop may contribute to the tumorigenesis (Kondoh et al., 1995) associated with cellular loss of functional p53 and the retinoblastoma gene product by association with E6 and E7 (Dyson et al., 1989 Scheffner et al., 1990 Werness et al., 1990). The observation that defective signaling mutants of SCF (Kondoh et al., 1995) or c-kit (Li et al., 1996) inhibited formation of testicular tumors in mice expressing HPV16 E6 and E7 indicates that c-kit activation is pivotal to tumorigenesis in these...

Verruca Vulgaris

Cutaneous Horn Formation

INTRODUCTION Also known as a viral wart, or a viral papilloma, this lesion is a papilloma caused by an epidermal infection with the human papillomavirus, which is spread by direct contact and fomites. Immunocompromised patients are more susceptible to infection. Verruca vulgaris is more common in children and young adults between the ages of 5 and 20 years. They may occur anywhere on the skin, including the eyelids. Two common variants exist Verruca filiformis or filiform warts (which include the subgroup known as digitate warts) and verruca plana, or flat warts. CLINICAL PRESENTATION These lesions begin as small tan or gray papules that slowly enlarge to become elevated papules with an irregular hyperkeratotic, papillomatous surface. The filiform variety is the most common variety on the face and eyelid, and is distinguished by columnar, hyperkeratotic projections. The digitate variety has several such spikes joined at the base. Lesions along the eyelid margin may induce a mild...

Viral Infections

Viral warts are caused by infection with one of the many papillomaviruses, and are spread by direct contact from infected individuals or possibly from shed skin on changing room floors. Warts present as horny nodules in which small black thrombosed capillaries may be seen. Wart infections may persist for many months and even years, but most resolve spontaneously. Topical therapies, including salicylic acid (10-50 ), lactic acid (4-20 ), podophyllin (up to 15 ), or glutaralderhyde (10 ), may be effective. Topical podophyllin (15 ) in compound benzoin tincture may be applied weekly to external genital warts and should be washed off 6 h after application. The preparation is irritant and care should be taken not to apply the paint to nonaffected skin. Severe toxicity has been reported to be caused by treatment of extensive lesions. Podophyllotoxin 0.5 may be applied to genital warts for 3-consecutive days and repeated weekly for up to 5 weeks if necessary.
