The authors underline a synergism of HPV + HSV and HPV + CIN that, together with general immunodeficiency and local factors are responsible for the oncogenesis of cervico carcinoma. This thesis takes on importance after literature reports of an increase of 10% in viral infections from HSV and HPV with a middle incidence of the 1-2% in all the colpocytologic examination cases not in women between 18 and 65 years. To obtain a successful preventive treatment the authors recommend a colpocytologic examination each year, possibly in association with colposcopic, histologic and molecular studies in all HPV positive cases.
