Patients with epidermodysplasia verruciformis have an immune defect that prevents recognition of HPV, resulting in severe skin infection and a 90% increase in NMSC risk (Pfister 2003).

Other clinical presentations of HPV include bowenoid papulosis and epidermodysplasia verruciformis.
Research so far has identified increased risks for people with skin HPV types called beta HPVs, particularly among organ transplant recipients and people with epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) - a rare genetic disorder, which leads to warts and malignant skin lesions.
The link between [beta]-HPV and skin cancer was first identified in patients with epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV), a rare genetic condition characterized by skin lesions on sun-exposed areas and an abnormal sensitivity to specific HPV types.
22) For example, there is clearly an association between verrucae and SCC in patients with epidermodysplasia verruciformis in which HPV types, predominantly HPV 5 and occasionally HPV 8, 14, 17, 20, or 47, are found in over 90% of the tumors on sun-exposed areas.
The key carcinogenetic mechanism of HPV in epidermodysplasia verruciformis has been shown to involve interference with the epidermal repair process by the HPV E6 protein, which inactivates UV induction of the proapoptotic protein BAK, resulting in a survival mechanism for HPV-infected keratinocytes.
Abstract Epidermodysplasia verruciformis is an uncommon cutaneous entity characterized by persistent human papillomavirus infection.
