INTRODUCTION Most cases of anal carcinoma seem to develop from high grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN) caused by persistent anal warts. Similar pre-invasive epithelial genital lesions (e.g. those of the cervix and vulva) have been shown to be associated with increased angiogenesis. In this study we examined biopsies of anal lesions ranging from(More)
Our understanding of the pathogenesis of Paget's disease of the vulva and the breast remains limited. Current evidence supports the fact that angiogenesis plays an important role in the pathogenesis of several diseases. Therefore, we sought to define its role, as correlated with microvessel density, in Paget's disease of the vulva and the breast.(More)
BACKGROUND Paget's disease of the vulva and the breast are uncommon conditions. The pathogenesis underlying these diseases is still unclear. Vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A), a potent angiogenic factor, has been demonstrated in a variety of tumour cell types and is thought to be involved in tumour expansion. Platelet-derived endothelial cell(More)
AIMS Loss of retinoblastoma protein expression and overexpression of cyclin D1 have been implicated in the development and progression of some cancers. Paget's disease of the vulva (PDV) and Paget's disease of the breast (PDB) are uncommon conditions and the pathogenesis of these diseases is still unclear. The aim was to examine the expression of the(More)
