Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis

Common Name(s)

Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare genodermatosis associated with a high risk of skin cancer ({14:Ramoz et al., 2000}). EV results from an abnormal susceptibility to specific related human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes and to the oncogenic potential of some of them, mainly HPV5. Infection with EV-associated HPV leads to the early development of disseminated flat wart-like and pityriasis versicolor-like lesions. Patients are unable to reject their lesions, and cutaneous Bowen carcinomas in situ and invasive squamous cell carcinomas develop in about half of them, mainly on sun-exposed areas.
