Abstract

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare disorder characterized by widespread human papillomavirus infection and malignant transformation. EV may be caused by mutations of the genes EVER1 or EVER2, which are located on the EV1 locus, 17q25. We describe a patient with EV and a novel homozygous gene mutation of EVER2 gene who was treated successfully with topical imiquimod.
