Wart virus in humans
Vegetațiile veneriene, negii venerieni sau genitali, condiloamele sau verucile genitale, toate aceste denumiri sunt sinonime ale infecției cu virusul HPV. Cu peste de tulpini descoperite în momentul actual, afecțiunile acestui virus pot fi simptomatice sau nu. Cea mai frecventă manifestare a virusului HPV este reprezentată de negii apăruți în diferite zone ale corpului, cum ar fi la nivelul mâinilor, picioarelor sau în zona genitală. Persoanele care se infectează cu virusul HPV se pot vindeca cu ajutorul medicației, fără să rămână cu sechele.
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 squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva of the left eye.
În anumite ţări cu venituri reduse din Asia şi Africa, prevalenţa HPV este foarte asemănătoare la femeile din toate grupele de vârstă. Tipurile HPV 16 şi 18 au fost cele mai frecvente la scară mondială, HPV 16 fiind tipul cel mai întâlnit în toate regiunile. HPV 18 şi ale tipuri oncogene precum 31, 39, 51, 52, 56, 58 şi 59, au avut o prevalenţă similară şi au făcut parte din tipurile cele mai întâlnite wart virus in humans HPV Femeile infectate cu un tip de HPV dat pot fi co- infectate sau infectate ulterior cu alte tipuri care pot cauza leziuni cervicale. Nu s - a observat nicio tendinţă clară în funcţie de vârstă.
The method used for the detection of HPV was real time polymerase chain reaction. The evolution was favorable after surgical removal of the tumor and the patient was explained that long-term follow-up is essential to avoid recurrence.

Warts: An Overview
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 wart virus in humans is mediated by ultraviolet radiation exposure that causes genetic alteration and wart virus in humans 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 half. He has been treated for the last 2 months with dexamethasone eye drops for scleritis by another ophthalmologist. 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 fragments: One for pathology preserved in formalin and one for HPV genotyping preserved in Cobas polymerase chain reaction PCR solution and refrigerated at 4°C until processing.
Histopathology exam showed a moderate differentiated keratinized squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva without koilocytosis [Figs.
