A series of 110 biopsies of the uterine cervix containing dysplastic and/or in situ changes were assessed morphologiccally with reference to presence or absence of the coexistent condylomatous lesions, and using the immunoperoxidase-PAP technique to disclose the HPV (human papilloma virus) antigens in the cells. Morphologically, 79 biopsies contained condylomatous (CO) lesions (63 flat, 12 inverted and 4 papillomatous ones), and 31 were non-condylomatous (NCO) dysplasias/in situ carcinomas. The mean age of the CO group was more than 10 years less than that of NCO women (P less than 0.0001). Of the papillomatous COs, 75% were associated with mild or moderate dysplasia only, whereas 42% of the inverted ones contained an associated in situ carcinoma. Most of the flat lesions were found in very young women (10-39 years of age). HPV antigens were demonstrated in all papillomatous lesions (100%), in 83% of the inverted ones, and in 67% of the flat COs. In generally, the frequency of the HPV-positive cases decreased when epithelial atypia increased. None of the NCO lesions showed HPV positive cells. The results support earlier morphological findings on the frequent association of cervical condylomas and epithelial dysplasias, as well as those on the HPV as the etiologic agent of the former. The role of HPV as a possible etiologic agent of the cervical squamous cell neoplasia deserves further attention.
