abstract

  • Oncogenic HPV types are detected in about one-half of skin biopsies from immunocompromised patients with a clinical presentation suspicious for epidermodysplasia verruciformis. Many of these lesions lack the histologic features of verruca planae, a focally thickened granular layer is a marker for viral detection, and the risk for dysplasia in such lesions is much higher than in epidermodysplasia verruciformis not associated with acquired immunosuppression.
