The presence of 7 human papillomavirus (HPV) types in genital condylomata acuminata (GCA) from 94 otherwise healthy women was detected by in situ hybridization, employing 3 different DNA probe cocktails (6/11, 16/18 and 31/35/51). HPV+ and HPV- GCA did not differ significantly as to the multiplicity and site of lesions, nor the prevalence of younger age, previous pregnancies or abortions, oral contraception, concurrent vaginal infection, aspecific PAP-test abnormalities and cutaneous hypo-anergy. Of note is that 13/18 HPV+ GCA (72.2%) lodged HPV types (16, 18, 31, 35, 51) which are more commonly related to dysplastic and neoplastic lesions of the female genital tract.
