Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas most commonly have a CD4(+) memory T-cell phenotype with relatively indolent course, but may in rare cases present with a CD8(+) cytotoxic phenotype exhibiting strikingly more aggressive clinical behavior. We present two cases of the clinically aggressive subtype of primary cutaneous epidermotropic CD8(+) cutaneous T-cell lymphoma(More)
Visual inspection of the cervix with application of 4% acetic acid (VIA) is an inexpensive alternative to cytology-based screening in areas where resources are limited, such as in many developing countries. We have examined the diagnostic agreement between off-site (remote) expert diagnosis using photographs of the cervix (photographic inspection with(More)
Human papillomavirus is responsible for common condyloma acuminata and a number of premalignant and malignant anogenital lesions. The immunocompromised population is at particular risk because of a higher incidence of malignant transformation. Lesions in this population may prove refractory to standard treatment. This is part II of a two-part review that(More)
Dermatologic human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in HIV patients manifests as both anogenital and nongenital skin disease. Anogenital HPV-related disease includes benign condyloma acuminata, the most common cutaneous manifestation of genital HPV infection; intermediate malignancy or premalignant conditions including giant condyloma acuminata (also called(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is responsible for common condyloma acuminata and a number of premalignant and malignant anogenital lesions. These conditions are of particular concern in immunocompromised individuals who have higher risk of malignant transformation and are more difficult to treat. This is part I of a two-part review that will highlight the(More)
Connexins (Cx) are structural proteins that form gap junctions, which are vital to cell-cell communication and help to regulate cell division. The purpose of this study was to evaluate if there are diagnostically important differences in immunostaining for connexins 43 (Cx43) and 26 (Cx26) in melanoma compared with nevi. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded(More)
Porokeratosis represents a heterogeneous group of keratinization disorders typified by the presence of annular plaques with distinct, raised borders that include cornoid lamellae. Histopathologically, a cornoid lamella is a column of parakeratotic scale overlying an epidermal invagination that displays nearby dyskeratotic keratinocytes and loss of the(More)
Digital squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) presents a diagnostic challenge because of its relatively rare occurrence and mimicry of benign conditions. Although low-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) subtypes are commonly associated with benign digital verrucae, digital SCC can be associated with high-risk, oncogenic HPV subtypes. We report 7 patients, including 4(More)
