  • HPV-related external genital lesions (EGLs) consist of two categories: condyloma (genital warts) and penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN).[grantome.com]
  • An infection is considered subclinical when there is no evidence of genital lesions or squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs).[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Some treatments for anogenital warts, such as cryotherapy (freezing the warts), are done in a clinic or doctor's office while other treatments, such as prescription creams, can be used at home. Repeat treatments are often necessary.[web.archive.org]
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our patient had treatment-resistant generalized verrucosis for 13 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • This is a more accurate way to describe the prognosis for patients with a particular type and stage of cancer. Five-year rates are used to produce a standard way to discuss prognosis, or outlook for survival.[web.archive.org]
  • However, in a prospective, population-based, observational study, the association between HPV status and prognosis strengthened after adjustment for potential confounders. 9 Indeed, tumor HPV status was as important to patient prognosis as tumor stage[dx.doi.org]
