HPV and Anal Diseases


Program Coordinators:
J. Palefsky (USA), P.Mullerat (UK)

The incidence of AIN (anal intraepithelial neoplasia) and anal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is increasing. Their relationship with HPV is unquestionable. Anal SCC is more prevalent in homosexual males and amongst immunosuppressed groups. The incidence, natural history, risk factors of progression, and best treatment are largely unknown. Early diagnosis and clinical awareness will prevent mutilating surgery.

Draft Program – subject to change

The following sessions of the EUROGIN 2012 congress are part of the Forum on HPV and Anal Diseases and of particular interest to proctologists and other specialists concerned by these diseases:
