Department of Ophthalmology, Grigore T.
E-mail: moc. We report the detection of HPV 52 in a sample taken from a year-old patient with hpv virus risks cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva of the left eye.
The method used for the detection of HPV was real time polymerase chain reaction. Hpv virus risks evolution was favorable after surgical hpv virus risks of the tumor and the patient was explained that long-term follow-up is essential to avoid recurrence.
Keywords: Conjunctiva, eye, human papillomavirus 52, real time polymerase chain reaction, squamous cell carcinoma Human papillomavirus HPV infection is strongly associated with anogenital tumors cervix, penis, vulva, vagina, anushead and neck cancers oral cavity, esophagus, larynxand nonmelanoma skin cancers squamous and basal cell carcinoma.
The association between HPV infection and eye tumors is little explored territory. Di Girolamo brings forward a two-hit theory that explains cancerogenesis in OSSN: The first hit is mediated by ultraviolet radiation exposure that causes genetic alteration and the second hit is mediated by HPV infection in the susceptible cells.
Case Report We present a unique case of squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva examined and treated in June The year-old patient presented at the Ophthalmology Department for mild stinging sensation and redness in the left eye for almost 1-year and a hpv virus risks. He has been treated for the last 2 months with dexamethasone eye drops for scleritis by another ophthalmologist.
Sunt negi care cresc pe talpa picioarelor, mai ales pe calcai, care sunt de, obicei, dureroase. Veruci filiforme Sunt formele care se dezvolta mai ales in jurul gurii sau hpv virus risks la copii si in regiunea barbii la barbate. Pot apare, de asemnea pe gat, sub barbie. Veruci plane Aceste forme se dezvolta pe fata, pe brate, pe partea superioara a mainilor, sunt turtite, netede, fiind mai greu de observat. La femei apar mai frecvent pe picioare.
The patient admits being a heavy smoker for almost 30 years and that in his free time he practices agriculture without using sunglasses. All other ophthalmological findings were normal.
Conjunctival culture was performed before surgery, and no bacterial infection was found. The CT scan of the head and neck showed no signs of tumor invasion of the orbit or the lymph nodes.
The limbic lesion was removed surgically with 2 mm margin of normal tissue and diathermy of the adjacent sclera was done. At the end, the remaining temporal defect was restored using a supero-nasal conjunctiva graft fixed in position with interrupted and surjet The excised tumor was cut into 2 hpv virus risks One for pathology preserved in formalin and one for HPV genotyping preserved in Cobas polymerase chain reaction PCR solution hpv virus risks refrigerated at 4°C until processing.
Histopathology exam showed a moderate differentiated keratinized squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva without koilocytosis hpv virus risks.
