OBJECTIVE: A study was undertaken to assess the distribution of high-risk HPV-genotypes in high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplastic lesions in Danish women. DESIGN: Observational, cross-sectional. POPULATION: Danish data from a multi-centre study undertaken in 13 European countries. METHODS: 290 archived fixed biopsies with high-grade cervical lesions from the Departments of Pathology at the University Hospitals in Hvidovre and Odense, Denmark. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Relevant histological samples were anonymized and shipped to a central laboratory for histopathology review and PCR-testing for human papillomavirus (HPV)-DNA. A standardised HPV-test methodology was utilised to enable comparison of HPV-genotype distribution. RESULTS: Of 290 Danish cervical samples 276 were evaluated as histologically adequate and all of these were HPV-positive (HPV+). Of the HPV+ samples 77.9% were diagnosed with a single HPV-type, with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)3 diagnosed in 82.3% and CIN2, CIN2/3, adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) and AIS+ other high-grade lesion diagnosed in the remaining 17.7%. The most prevalent HPV-types were: HPV16: 54.0%; HPV33: 13.5%; HPV31: 10.7%; HPV18: 7.9% and HPV52: 4.7%. Of HPV+ samples 21.4% were diagnosed with multiple HPV-types, with CIN3 diagnosed in 79.6% and CIN2, CIN2/3, AIS and AIS+ other high-grade lesion diagnosed in the remaining 20.4%. The most prevalent HPV-types were: HPV16: 49.2%; HPV31: 30.5%; HPV52: 27.1%; HPV51: 20.3%; HPV18: 16.9%; HPV33: 13.6%; HPV45: 11.9% and 0.7% unknown types. CONCLUSIONS: HPV16 and HPV18 are detected in approximately 75% of high-grade intraepithelial cervical lesions in a Danish population (single or multiple infections) and these two genotypes are considered causative in at least 61.9% of the high-grade intraepithelial lesions (single infection).
