HPV

A DNA virus that causes warts on acral parts which, in those with multiple sexual partners, may be premalignant, especially in those infected with types 16, 18, 31, 33 or 65 genotypes of HPV  have been described. A genotype is distinct if it has < 50% DNA sequence similarity or “homology” with its closest relative. HPV has been identified by in situ hybridisation in epithelial proliferations that are benign (e.g., condyloma acuminatum), or malignant (e.g., squamous cell carcinoma of the penis, anus, and uterine cervix) or of uncertain clinical behaviour (e.g., inverted papillomas of the nasopharynx).
