The article offers information on a differential diagnostic study related to lesion development in the eyelids. It mentions that such lesions can be a result of both benign as well as malignant conditions and therefore an expert ophthalmic investigation is mandatory in such cases. Further it reviews some of the commonly encountered categories of lesions including squamous papilloma, sebhorreic keratoses and squamous cell carcinoma.

    Genomes of human papillomaviruses (HPV) are common in biopsies from non-melanoma skin cancers but are also found on healthy skin and it is possible that HPV positivity in tumor biopsies by PCR may merely reflect contamination of the lesion surface. To investigate this issue, 229 immunocompetent...
