[Article in German]


By means of hybridization of nucleic acid, we detected DNA specific for papilloma virus, type 6a, in a caruncle papilloma of a 45-year-old female patient suffering from genital warts. These findings show that papilloma viruses, which are usually responsible for genital warts, may also induce conjunctival papilloma.
