Degenerate and nested PCR: a highly sensitive and specific method for detection of human papillomavirus infection in cutaneous warts.

Abstract

The role of human papillomavirus (HPV) in anogenital carcinogenesis is firmly established, but evidence that supports a similar role in skin remains speculative. Immunosuppressed renal transplant recipients have an increased incidence of viral warts and nonmelanoma skin cancer, and the presence of HPV DNA in these lesions, especially types associated with… (More)
