[Bowenoid papulosis: myth or reality?].

Dec, 2000

The authors present a review of recent theories about clinical entity of Bowenoid Papulosis (P.B.), considering histological and etiopathogenesis aspects. The starting point of this review was recent observation of some clinical cases of P.B. The HPV is clearly involved in the start and the growth of this pathology. However, we have serious doubts regarding the etiopathology role of such virus of the pathology and the element of the start of a simil-neoplastic shape because the HPV was not found in the clinical shapes that we have examined. The frequent spread of the illness might give an answer to the immunology of the patient even though there was not significant immunity deficit in the previous cases that we have examined. Another remark was noticed by therapy writers. They are wondering whether they should practice a therapy called "wait" rather than treatment which is sometimes harmful and collateral effects. The last patients who have been treated by dtc in the beginning were restricted to local therapies with podofilotoxines in rare cases where they were examined after their treatment. read more

The presence of HPV types 6/11, 16/18, 31/33/51 in Bowenoid papulosis demonstrated by DNA in situ hybridization.

Dec, 2000

Bowenoid papulosis (BP) is an unusual dermatosis with variable clinical presentation: multiple, generally small, round, papules, isolated or confluent, with smooth or papillomatous surface, sometimes with desquamation. The colour is variable from rose, reddish-purple to brown. These papules are localized mostly on the genital mucosa or perigenital skin of young adults. The aetiopathogenesis of the disorder is not well defined, but it may be linked to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. We report a case of BP with some particular aspects: (1) misdiagnosis of the disease for 2 years; (2) contemporaneous presence of different types of HPV. read more
