Clinical manifestations and burden of HPV infection – prevention and therapeutic possibilities

0

ABSTRACT

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the virus responsible for the most common and widespread sexually-transmitted infection. Most sexually active people will acquire at least one type of HPV  in their lifetime and some may be repeatedly infected. In most cases, HPV infection is transient and asymptomatic, but when the infection persists it can cause benign diseases, precancerous lesions and malignancies of various locations. Low risk HPV types can produce proliferative lesions either in the skin or mucosa, whereas high risk types possess carcinogenic potential. This paper is a review of the latest data in the literature regarding the clinical manifestations of HPV infections, current prevention and therapeutic possibilities.

Keywords: HPV infection, carcinogenic potential, anogenital warts.
