Detection of human papilloma virus infection in men Globally, human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most frequent sexually transmitted infection (STI) and it affects men and women equally. In men, HPV has been mainly associated with skin lesions like ano-genital warts and intraepithelial neoplasia of penis and anus in recent years. HPV prevalence in men varies extremely due to kind of sample and detection techniques. The most widely used samples to study HPV in men are: penile shaft, glans, prepuce, coronal sulcus, urine and semen, and its detection is usually performed with techniques like reverse line blot (RLB) and hybrid capture (HC). Given that the highest infection rates are in Africa and Latin America, the aim of this review is to describe the pathogenesis of HPV and its main detection techniques in men.
