Resumen

CAB-SANCHEZ, Beddler G. et al. Epidemiology of oral HPV infection in young healthy individuals. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.6, pp.557-562. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182017000600557.

Background:

HPV infection is the most common sexually transmitted viral infection, and is associated with several neoplasms.

Aim:

To describe the epidemiology, natural history and risk factors associated with oral HPV infection in asymptomatic young adults.

Methods:

A prospective and longitudinal study was conducted, including subjects without oral pathology, who were sampled from the oral mucosa. All subjects with positive results were re-sampled 6 months later. The presence of HPV was identified by PCR. Demographic and sexual behavior data were obtained with a survey that was responded without the intervention of the researcher.

Results:

102 samples were collected from subject of 18-26 years old, 60 (58.8%) were male. The prevalence of the virus was 6.9%; all positive subjects had active sexual life. Same-gender relationships were the only variable associated with the presence of the virus (p < 0.05). At six months all subjects had eliminated the virus.

Conclusion:

Oral HPV infection is transient and is associated to same-gender relationships, mainly women who have sex with women.
