BACKGROUND Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder of the immune system manifested by increased susceptibility to cutaneous human papillomavirus (HPV) infection beginning from the early years of life, and compromising lesions resembling flat warts, especially on the distal extremities and the face; but malignant transformation occurs in sun-exposed areas within the third or fourth decade of life.
