Abstract

Objective: To show the prevalence and determine the type of human papillomavirus (HPV) in healthy women of reproductive age in Hungary. Study Design: We determined HPV nucleic acid using the Digene Hybrid Capture HPV-DNA assay from endocervical swabs of 1121 volunteer women of reproductive age. With the help of the hybridization antibody capture test we determined 14 HPV types (low risk, intermediate and high risk). Results: HPV prevalence was 17.5% considering the whole material. At the Szeged center 27.6% of the women screened were HPV positive, whereas at the three centers in Budapest, HPV prevalence did not exceed 15% in either of them. With a cytological examination out of 1100 cases, 117 (10.6%) were found to be HPV infected. The virus infection could be shown out of 1018 non-malignant cytologies in 60 (5.9%) cases and from 82 epithelial lesions 57 (69.5%) were infected. The cytological and molecular HPV diagnoses showed a significant relation to each other (P
