Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV), also known as treeman syndrome, is an extremely rare autosomal recessive hereditary skin disorder associated with a high risk of skin cancer. It is characterized by abnormal susceptibility to human papillomaviruses (HPVs) of the skin. The resulting uncontrolled HPV infections result in the growth of scaly macules and papules, particularly on the hands and feet. It is typically associated with HPV types 5 and 8, which are found in about 80% of the normal population as asymptomatic infections, although other types may also contribute.
The condition usually has an onset of between the ages of one and 20 but can occasionally present in middle age. The condition is also known as Lewandowsky–Lutz dysplasia – named after the physicians who first documented it, Felix Lewandowsky and Wilhelm Lutz.
When I did a little study of these people, I found that most of the people affected with this disease are from Bangladesh. Why such a scary disease is spreading in one of the particular area.
