Abstract
Some human papilloma viruses are thought to be associated with skin cancer. In this pilot study, 21 female renal transplant carriers, 10 with a history of skin squamous cell carcinoma and 11 without, together with 9 age-matched healthy women were investigated for human papilloma virus DNA in sun-exposed (forehead) and less sun-exposed (buttock) skin, mouth and uterine cervix. Paraffin-embedded tumours from 9 of the patients with a history of squamous cell carcinoma were analysed. Healthy skin from both the healthy and the immunosuppressed individuals harboured a wide variety of papilloma viruses. In the healthy individuals, samples from less sun-exposed skin showed a lower prevalence of human papilloma virus DNA than corresponding samples... (More)
Some human papilloma viruses are thought to be associated with skin cancer.

Paraffin-embedded tumours from 9 of the patients with a history of squamous cell carcinoma were analysed. Healthy skin from both the healthy and the immunosuppressed individuals harboured a wide variety of papilloma viruses. In the healthy individuals, samples from less sun-exposed skin showed a lower prevalence of human papilloma virus DNA than corresponding samples from the immunosuppressed patients (4/9 and 7/9, respectively). Among the immunosuppressed patients, human papillomavirus DNA was found as frequently in buttock samples (17/21) as in forehead samples (17/20). There was no increased prevalence of human papillomavirus in the cervix or mouth samples from the immunosuppressed patients. (Less)
