The Role of Human Papillomavirus Infection in Etiology and Pathogenesis of Laryngeal and Esophageal Epithelial Neoplasms

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

Infection with certain types of human papillomaviruses is intimately linked with benign and malignant squamous epithelial cell lesions of the lower genital tract in both sexes. This rela­tionship can be appreciated at many levels, as demonstrated by a wealth of molecular, exper­imental, morphological and clinical data. Despite extensive research, the role of human papillo­mavirus infection in the etiology of similar epithe­lial lesions of the upper part of the respiratory and digestive tract remains obscure. The purpose of the present review is to summarize the present knowledge of human papillomavirus infection and epithelial neoplasms of the larynx and esopha­gus, and to briefly present the results of human papillomavirus studies done in Slovenia.
