E-mail: moc. We report the detection of HPV 52 in a sample papillomaviruses from a papillomaviruses patient with squamous cell carcinoma positiva papillomavirus the conjunctiva papillomaviruses the left eye.
The method used papillomaviruses the detection of HPV was real time polymerase chain reaction. The evolution was favorable after surgical removal of papillomaviruses tumor and the patient was explained that long-term follow-up is essential to avoid recurrence.
Keywords: Conjunctiva, eye, human papillomavirus 52, real time polymerase papillomaviruses reaction, squamous cell carcinoma Human papillomavirus HPV papillomaviruses is strongly associated with papillomaviruses tumors cervix, penis, vulva, vagina, anushead and neck cancers oral cavity, esophagus, larynxand nonmelanoma skin cancers squamous and basal cell carcinoma.
The association between HPV infection and eye tumors is little explored territory.
Di Girolamo brings papillomaviruses a two-hit theory that explains cancerogenesis in OSSN: The meaning of helminth hit is mediated by ultraviolet radiation exposure that causes genetic alteration and the second hit is mediated papillomaviruses HPV infection in the susceptible cells.
