† Human papillomavirus-2 genomes were detected by molecular hybridization in two cases of basal cell carcinomas that developed in immunosuppressed individuals. This form of human papillomavirus is usually responsible for common warts in the general population. Although it does not appear to have oncogenic potential, it may be, in some cases, associated with cutaneous malignancy.
