1/288. Acquired vulvar lymphangioma mimicking genital warts. A case report and review of the literature.

    A 44-year-old female developed confluent, dusky red, pruritic labial papules clinically suspected to be genital warts. She had a long-standing history of Crohn's disease with vulvar fistulae. The papular eruption developed after several bouts of cellulitis in a region of vulvar lymphedema. Shave biopsy of a papule exhibited papillated epidermal hyperplasia overlying a dermis with a 'Swiss-cheese' appearance secondary to lymphedema and superficial ectatic thin-walled vascular spaces characteristic of lymphangiectasias. review of published cases reveals that acquired lymphangiomas often affect the vulva compared to other cutaneous sites and can be associated with surgery, radiation therapy, infection (e.g., erysipelas, tuberculosis), Crohn's disease, congenital dysplastic angiopathy and congenital lymphedema. Rather than translucent vesicles ('frog spawn') typical of extragenital cutaneous lymphangiomas, vulvar lymphangiomas often present as verrucous papules that can be mistaken for genital warts. In this case, we believe that the combination of vulvar Crohn's disease and recurrent cellulitis resulted in local lymphatic destruction, lymphedema and ultimately symptomatic lymphangiectasias that mimicked genital warts.

2/288. A successfully treated case of condyloma acuminatum of the urethra and urinary bladder.

    Condyloma acuminatum very seldom affects the urinary bladder, but if it does conservative treatment has been considered of little value and cystourethrectomy will eventually be required. A case with urethrovesical condyloma is presented, where repeated transurethral resections cured the patient. ( info)

3/288. Cervical adenoid cystic carcinoma coexisting with multiple human papillomavirus-associated genital lesions. A common etiology?

    Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the uterine cervix is a rare tumor with unknown etiology. We report a case of adenoid cystic carcinoma occurring in a young woman, associated with multiple human papillomavirus (HPV)-related lesions including condyloma acuminata, vulvar intraepithelial neoplasm, cervical intraepithelial neoplasm and invasive basaloid squamous cell carcinoma. While adenoid cystic carcinoma has previously been found to coexist with squamous cell carcinoma or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, its association with such a variety of HPV-related lesions in our case has not been previously reported, and raises the speculation that HPV may also be the causative factor for adenoid cystic carcinoma. However, in situ dna hybridization and polymerase chain reaction in our current study failed to demonstrate the existence of HPV dna in adenoid cystic carcinoma. ( info)

4/288. Vulvar carcinoma in young patients and its relationship with genital warts.

    We report the occurrence of aggressive vulvar carcinoma associated with condyloma acuminata in three patients under 33 years old. Discussion of the role of the human papilloma virus (HPV) in the development of vulvar cancer is also presented. Three patients with condyloma associated with aggressive vulvar squamous cell carcinoma, in situ (1 case) and invasive (2 cases), documented by biopsy and/or vulvectomy are presented. in situ hybridization (ISH) was used to characterize the subtypes of HPV. One patient with erythematous systemic lupus developed in situ carcinoma after 5 years. The other two cases also developed aggressive multicentric, invasive squamous cell carcinoma after 10 years of diagnosis of condyloma. In all cases HPV cytological abnormalities were seen throughout the pathological examination. HPV 16 and 18 were present in cells of invasive squamous cell carcinoma in cases 2 and 3. HPV 6 and 11 were detected only in the condyloma area in case 2. HPV 30 was seen only in the condyloma area in case 3. This report emphasizes the need for biopsies of all unusually persistent or treatment-resistant condylomas, particularly in young and/or immunosuppressed patients. ( info)

5/288. Malignant potential of gigantic condylomatous lesions of the vulva.

    A diagnostic and therapeutic approach in the identification of malignant lesions and the types of HPV in 11 patients with gigantic condylomatous vulvar protuberances is presented. Different histological types of squamous cell vulvar carcinoma have been found in 8 (72.7%) cases: condylomatous (4), verrucous (3) and basaloid type of the carcinoma (1). HPV type 16, confirmed in 5 cases, was most often present (4 condylomatous and 1 basaloid carcinoma types). Other types of HPV such as HPV-6 was detected in 3 cases of verrucous, type 11 in 2 cases of verrucous and condylomatous carcinoma and type 18 in 1 case of condylomatous carcinoma. Radical vulvectomy followed by bilateral inguinofemoral lymphadenectomy was performed in 4 patients with condylomatous carcinoma, hemivulvectomy in basaloid carcinoma whereas wide local excision was performed in the verrucous type of carcinoma. No patient died except 1 with condylomatous carcinoma in whom 6 positive lymph nodes were detected after the primary operation. The patient died 4 years later following 3 excisions of local recurrences. ( info)

6/288. radiation-induced total regression of a highly recurrent giant perianal condyloma: report of case.

    We report a case of a highly recurrent giant perianal condyloma, or buschke-lowenstein tumor, which was successfully treated by telecobalt therapy. We conclude that radiation therapy is an optional treatment modality for the management of giant perianal condylomata in selected cases. ( info)

7/288. Warty (condylomatous) squamous cell carcinoma of the penis: a report of 11 cases and proposed classification of 'verruciform' penile tumors.

    Within the spectrum of penile squamous cell carcinomas, those that we descriptively refer to collectively as the "verruciform" lesions are particularly difficult to subclassify. In a review of 50 such tumors, we found 11 distinctive neoplasms with condylomatous features conforming to the appearance of so-called "warty (condylomatous) carcinoma." The average patient age was 55 years and the average duration of disease was 19 months. The primary tumor involved multiple anatomic sites (glans, coronal sulcus, and foreskin) in seven cases and a single site (glans or foreskin) in four cases. Grossly, white to gray cauliflower-like tumors typically measuring approximately 5 cm were noted. Histologically the tumors were mainly papillomatous with acanthosis and hyperkeratosis. The papillae had prominent fibrovascular cores. The most conspicuous microscopic findings were striking nuclear atypia of koilocytotic type and clear cytoplasm. The interface between tumor and stroma was irregular in the majority of cases; deep invasion of corpus cavernosum was noted in five cases. The differential diagnosis included verrucous carcinoma, low-grade papillary squamous cell carcinoma, not otherwise specified, and giant condyloma acuminatum. Among other differences, the first two lesions show no koilocytotic changes and the last lacks malignant features and irregular stromal invasion. Metastatic spread occurred in two patients; both are alive with evidence of recurrent disease 12 and 72 months after initial diagnosis. A third patient was alive with recurrent disease 12 months after diagnosis. Five patients were free of disease 8, 12, 24, 52, and 108 months after diagnosis. Three patients were lost to follow up. Warty (condylomatous) carcinomas of the penis are morphologically distinctive verruciform neoplasms with features of human papillomavirus-related lesions and should be distinguished from other verruciform tumors so that differences in behavior, if any, between these tumors will become established.

8/288. focal epithelial hyperplasia: a multifocal oral human papillomavirus infection.

    Widespread, slightly elevated and confluent nodules are observed throughout the oral mucosa in a young Hispanic girl. Repeated irritation of the soft tissues from a compromised occlusion is an aggravating factor for the spread of these lesions. A diagnosis of focal epithelial hyperplasia, a human papillomavirus infection, is made following histopathologic diagnosis and viral typing. Recognition of this specific type of warts is important in order to avoid the mistaken identification of condyloma acuminata, which may have significant repercussions in the life of a young child.

9/288. Colpectomy after vaginoplasty in transsexuals.

    BACKGROUND: Penile amputation, vaginoplasty, and clitoroplasty help male-to-female transsexuals accept their bodies and increase psychosocial function. Subsequent colpectomy is unusual. CASES: We report three patients in whom complicated, long-term problems subsequent to vaginoplasty led to total colpectomy in one case of neovaginal overgrowth of condylomata acuminata, and in two cases of colitis in rectosigmoid transplants used for neovaginoplasties. CONCLUSION: Before inversion of penile skin, in cases in which the genital skin has condylomata, the risk of condylomata overgrowth might be anticipated. Rectosigmoid vaginoplasty might result in therapy-resistent colitis, which also could lead to colpectomy. ( info)

10/288. Giant-sized condyloma of the breast with focal acantholytic changes.

    BACKGROUND: A healthy 26-year-old pregnant woman presented with a 6.0-cm exophytic mass in her left inframammary fold. The lesion was surgically excised. methods: Histopathologic sections of the skin lesion were reviewed in hematoxylin and eosin-stained slides. Additional sections were studied by an in situ hybridization method for human papillomavirus dna (HPV) types 6 and 11. RESULTS: The histopathologic examination demonstrated a benign exophytic, verrucous and papillary epidermal proliferation with features of condyloma acuminatum. Reactivity to HPV dna types 6 and 11 was demonstrated by in situ hybridization method. The epidermis adjacent to, and focally within, the neoplasm showed multiple areas of suprabasilar and intraepidermal acantholysis without dyskeratosis. CONCLUSIONS: Condylomas related to HPV 6 and 11 may be found in extragenital locations including conjunctiva, oral and nasal mucosa. To our knowledge, however, the extragenital condylomas described in the literature have not included the giant-sized variant. We describe an example of a benign, giant-sized condyloma acuminatum of the breast with nearby acantholytic alterations similar to Hailey-Hailey disease. ( info)
