ABSTRACT

La epidermodisplasia verruciforme es una genodermatosis precancerosa de tipo autosómica recesiva, infrecuente, de distribución mundial. Los portadores de esta enfermedad presentan una inmunodepresión celular selectiva contra determinados tipos de virus papiloma humano, sobre todo con los genotipos 5 y 8, desarrollando desde edades tempranas de la vida lesiones semejantes a pitiriasis versicolor, verrugas planas y queratosis seborreicas, muy extendidas, crónicas y refractarias al tratamiento. Es habitual la aparición de carcinomas escamosos múltiples, especialmente en el contexto de cofactores carcinogénicos como el sol. Presentamos a un paciente con diagnóstico de epidermodisplasia verruciforme, que evidenciaba lesiones tipo verrugas planas, queratosis seborreicas y carcinoma escamoso, la cual fue tratada con excéresis con margen de seguridad y reconstrucción con injerto de piel parcial y colocación de sistema de aspiración sellada al vacío con buena evolución.


Verruciform epidermodysplasia is a rare, autosomal recessive precancerous genodermatosis with a worldwide distribution. Carriers of this disease present a selective cellular immunosuppression against certain types of human papilloma virus, especially with genotypes 5 and 8, developing from early ages of life lesions similar to pityriasis versicolor, flat warts and seborrheic keratoses, very widespread, chronic and refractory to treatment. Multiple squamous cell carcinomas are common, especially in the context of carcinogenic cofactors such as the sun. We present a patient with a diagnosis of verruciform epidermodysplasia, who evidenced flat wart-like lesions, seborrheic keratoses and squamous carcinoma, which was treated with excision with a margin of safety and reconstruction with partial skin graft and placement of a vacuum-sealed aspiration system with good evolution.

ABSTRACT

Cutaneous human papillomaviruses (HPVs) include β- and γ-HPVs, in addition to a small fraction of α-HPVs. β-HPVs were first isolated from patients with the rare genetic disorder Epidermodysplasia verruciformis, and they are associated with the development of nonmelanoma skin cancer at sun-exposed skin sites in these individuals. Organ transplant recipients also have greater susceptibility to β-HPV infection of the skin and an increased risk of developing nonmelanoma skin cancer. In both immunosuppressed and immunocompromised individuals, cutaneous HPVs are ubiquitously disseminated throughout healthy skin and may be an intrinsic part of the commensal flora. Functional analysis of E6 and E7 proteins of specific cutaneous HPVs has provided a mechanistic comprehension of how these viruses may induce carcinogenesis. Nevertheless, additional research is crucial to better understand the pathological implications of the broad distribution of these HPVs.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is an autosomal recessive disease of the skin commonly associated with EVER1 and EVER 2 mutations, and is characterized by high susceptibility to infections associated with certain types of human papillomavirus called EV-PVH. Patients have warty lesions on the skin of varying characteristics and are often associated with skin cancer, with a strong association being found with EVER1 and EVER2 mutation gene. The case presented below concerns an absolute CD4+ lymphopenia, and establishes the hypothesis of a possible mutation of the RHOH gene as its origin.


Resumen La epidermodisplasia verruciforme (EV) es una enfermedad de la piel autosómica recesiva, relacionada con la mutación EVER1 y EVER2, caracterizada por alta susceptibilidad a infecciones asociadas a ciertos tipos de papillomavirus humano llamadas EV-PVH. Los pacientes presentan lesiones verrucosas en la piel de características variadas y muchas veces asociadas a cáncer de piel no melanocítico, encontrándose una fuerte asociación con la mutación del gen EVER1 y EVER2. El caso que se presenta a continuación documenta linfopenia absoluta de CD4+ por lo que se plantea la hipótesis de una posible mutación del gen RHOH como etiología.

ABSTRACT

La verrugosis generalizada es un rasgo común a diferentes síndromes de inmunodeficiencia, cuyo prototipo es la epidermodisplasia verruciforme (EV). Se presenta una paciente con síndrome WILD (Warts, Immunodeficiency, Lymphoedema, anogenital Dysplasia), que consultó por verrugas profusas, con displasia genital y linfedema. La presencia de DNA para los papilomavirus de los grupos I y II se reveló con hibridización molecular por captura híbrida en microplaca para detección del DNA de HPV de lesiones de cuello uterino. La inmunofenotipificación en sangre periférica demostró población linfoide con moderado aumento de poblaciones NK y TNK, sin evidencia inmunofenotípica de población B clonal. Las verrugas planas mejoraron con retinoides sistémicos e imiquimod tópico. La displasia genital desapareció luego de la vacunación para HPV con vacuna cuadrivalente (AU)


Generalized verrucosis is a common characteristic of several immunodeficiency disorders whose prototype is the epidermodysplasia verruciformis. We report a patient with WILD SYNDROME (Warts, Immunodeficiency, Lymphoedema and anogenital Dysplasia) who consulted for profuse warts, genital dysplasia and limphoedema. The presence of DNA from papillomavirus groups I and II was revealed by molecular hybridization with hybrid capture in microplate for HPV DNA detection of uterine cervical lesions. Immunophenotyping in peripheral blood showed lymphoid population with moderate increase in NK and TNK populations without immunophenotypic evidence of clonal B population. Flat warts improved with systemic retinoids and topical imiquimod. The genital dysplasia disappeared after vaccination with quadrivalent HPV vaccine (AU)

ABSTRACT

A 24-year-old male patient, who underwent kidney transplant six years ago due to Lupus nephritis, for the last two years presented asymptomatic erythematous scaly plaques on the abdomen and areas exposed to light. Post-transplantation immunosuppressive medications included prednisone, mycophenolate sodium and sirolimus. The histopathologic features were typical for epidermodysplasia verruciformis. Epidermodysplasia verruciformis is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis with increased susceptibility to specific strains of cutaneous human papilloma virus. The term ''acquired epidermodysplasia verruciformis'' was recently introduced to the literature and describes epidermodysplasia verruciformis occurring in patients with impaired cell-mediated immunity. We report an additional case associated to immunosuppression after kidney transplantation.

ABSTRACT

Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis is a genodermatosis characterized by susceptibility to infection by specific HPV types (HPV 3/10 and beta-HPVs). It is considered to be the first model in human carcinogenesis induced by HPV. In this report we present a rare case of Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis associated with vertical transmission of HIV. Although most patients with HIV present infections by HPV virus, the frequency of Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis is no greater in patients with HIV because in EV there is a deficiency of specific cellular immunity to infection by some types of HPV, called HPV-related Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis.


A Epidermodisplasia Verruciforme é uma genodermatose que se caracteriza pela susceptibilidade à infecção por tipos específicos de HPV (HPVs 3 e 10 e os beta-HPVs) e é considerada o primeiro modelo no homem de carcinogênese induzida pelo HPV. Neste artigo apresenta-se um caso raro de Epidermodisplasia Verruciforme em um paciente com HIV desde o nascimento. Apesar dos doentes com HIV apresentarem mais infecções pelos vírus HPVs, existem poucos relatos na literatura de Epidermodisplasia Verruciforme no doente com HIV. Isso se explica, pois a Epidermodisplasia Verruciforme é consequência de uma deficiência celular específica à infecção por alguns tipos distintos de HPVs, ditos HPVs relacionados a Epidermodisplasia Verruciforme.

ABSTRACT

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare, life-long heritable disease caused due to a unique susceptibility to human papilloma virus. The disseminated verrucous lesions and pityriasis versicolor-like lesions persist from early childhood and can transform into a cutaneous malignancy in a fourth of patients. Malignant transformation into syringoid eccrine carcinoma (SEC) has been reported only once so far. SEC is an extremely invasive, rare, locally destructive, slowly growing adnexal tumor. We hereby report the association of EV with SEC in a 29-year-old male.

ABSTRACT

Diversos virus pueden infectar la piel y las mucosas de los seres humanos, manifestándose en diferentes patologías, de acuerdo a la edad, género y estado inmunológico. Un grupo importante de éstos tiene capacidad de replicar en células epiteliales, originando cuadros clínicos en los cuales se evidencia la destrucción celular o bien la hiperplasia del tejido infectado. Gran parte de estos virus persisten en células infectadas por años y tienen la capacidad de reactivarse y de manifestar nuevamente enfermedades cutáneas o mucosas. En algunos casos, ésta sólo se expresa de manera subclínica en una excreción del virus por secreciones que son fuente de infección. En los últimos años, los avances en técnicas moleculares han permitido contar con metodologías diagnósticas cada vez más sensibles, específicas y rápidas. Así como también el progreso en el área de vacunas y antivirales nos entrega mayores herramientas profilácticas y terapéuticas.


Various viruses can infect the skin and the mucous membranes of human beings, manifesting itself in different diseases, according to age, gender and immune status. An important group has the ability to replicate in epithelial cells, causing clinical manifestations which evidenced the cell destruction either infected tissue hyperplasia. Much of these viruses persist in cells infected by years and have the ability to reactivate and again express cutaneous or mucosal diseases. In some cases, it is only asymptomatically shred in secretions that are a source of infection. In recent years, advances in molecular techniques have allowed to have increasingly sensitive, specific and rapid diagnostic methodologies. As well as, the progress in the area of vaccines and antivirals also gives us greater prophylactic and therapeutic tools.

ABSTRACT

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis is a very rare, chronic disease that's characterized by persistent human papillomavirus infection. This type of lesion may transform into malignant skin tumors, usually after the age of 30 years. We report here on a 33-year-old woman who presented with squamous cell carcinoma and actinic keratosis that developed from epidermodysplasia verruciformis. Her malignant skin lesions were effectively treated by surgical excision, cryotherapy and topical application of imiquimod.
