Papilloma virus: a survey of the literature. Note I: identification and related oral pathology

Femiano F.

Viral pathology is constantly increasing, in particular forms correlated to papilloma virus infection, both on account of the spread of oral sexual practices and of the receptivity of the host who is often affected by immune deficiency induced by the increased use of immunosuppressive treatment and the spread of HIV. Viral pathologies caused by papilloma virus are pre-cancerous lesions with a high degree of malignant transformation and for this reason the oral clinician must be able to diagnose them and start appropriate therapy. This study highlights the general characteristics of hyman papilloma virus, the related oral pathologies and the host's response.
