Abstract

A survey was carried out to determine the prevalence of genital human papilloma virus (HPV) infection in asymptomatic women. The overall prevalence of HPV infection was 23%. Age (under 24 years), pathological cytology were significantly associated with exposure to HPV infection. HPV screening is important for young women, especially, where there is a pathological cytological diagnosis.
