Abstract

Purpose: To collect information about HPV in men and the (possible) correlation with HVP infection in women. Methods: Review of the literature. Results: An overview of HPV-related penile and anal malignancies in men and the risk factors of acquiring HPV. Conclusion: In men HPV is also partially responsible for anogenital malignancies. Although the prevalence of HPV-related malignancies in men is much lower than in women, it is useful to gain more knowlege. Especially knowing if men are really the HPV reservoir and transmitters for women can make a difference in deciding whether men should also be screened for HPV and if they are good candidates for vaccination.
