The Papillomaviruses are DNA viruses which belong to the Papova family, having a great affinity for epithelial
tissue. They can produce proliferative lesions either in the skin or mucosa, either in man or other animals. Various kinds
of lesions, mainly benign, are caused by numerous types of human papillomavirus (HPV) involving the well-known
verruca vulgaris, respiratory laryngeal papillomatosis, condylomata acuminata and focal epithelial hyperplasia, as well as
a possible association with other alterations and lesions.
We present in this paper an update on common clinical manifestations and treatment of HPV infection.
