HPV and HPV-associated Diseases

Eileen F Dunne et al. Infect Dis Clin North Am.


Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. HPV is associated with a significant burden of disease and cancer, including anogenital warts and recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, and anogenital and oropharyngeal cancers. Effective prevention is available, including primary prevention of cancers and anogenital warts through HPV vaccination, and secondary prevention of cervical cancer through screening and treatment of precancer. This article focuses on HPV infection and the clinical consequences of infection, with attention to cervical and anogenital squamous intraepithelial neoplasia and anogenital warts.

Keywords: Anogenital warts; Cervical cancer; Genital warts; HPV; HPV vaccines; HPV-associated diseases.
