Abstract

HPV infections of the genital tract are one of the most common sexually transmitted viral infections in the United States. Data from STD clinics and private physicians' offices reveal that genital warts, one manifestation of genital HPV infection, have been diagnosed more frequently in recent years. Using a variety of diagnostic techniques, asymptomatic HPV infection has been identified in men and women and is probably much more common than clinically apparent infection.
