1/2. Oral precancerous and malignant lesions associated with graft-versus-host disease: report of 2 cases.

    The development of secondary malignancies has been recognized as a potential iatrogenic complication in patients who have graft-versus-host disease secondary to bone marrow transplantation. Lymphohematopoietic cancer is most frequent, although solid malignancies have also been reported. We describe 2 patients with graft-versus-host disease who developed oral precancerous and malignant lesions. The first patient, a 24-year-old white man, had erythroplakia of the buccal mucosa that proved to be carcinoma in situ histopathologically. The second patient, a 14-year-old Hispanic boy, developed synchronous cutaneous and lingual squamous cell carcinomas. The current cases and similar sporadic case reports found in the literature highlight the susceptibility of patients with graft-versus-host disease to the development of oral cancer. Therefore, it is recommended that thorough evaluation of the oral mucosa and close follow-up be offered to all patients treated with bone marrow transplantation and particularly to those who develop graft-versus-host disease.

2/2. Queyrat's erythroplasia of the prepuce: a case-report.

    A case of Queyrat's erythroplasia of the prepuce is reported. The Authors emphasize the precancerous role of the lesion because of its high frequency of malignant transformation. Local excision appears to be the only adequate form of treatment.
