We estimated the effect of sexual behavior, age and immunodeficiency on the number of High-Risk Human-Papillomavirus (HR-HPV) in the anal canal among HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM). Anal samples were genotyped with Linear Array and risk factors were investigated with Poisson regression. Of 586 MSM, 69% were Spanish, 25.6% Latin-Americans, median age 34.9 years (IQR: 30.1-40.8). Median number recent sexual partners was 6 (IQR: 2-24), median CD4-cell count was 531.5 cells/mm(3) (IQR: 403-701). Prevalence of any and multiple HR-HPV infections was 83.4% and 60.5%, respectively. Commonest types were HPV-16 (42%), HPV-51 (24%), HPV-39 (23.7%) and HPV-59 (23.5%). Age had a non-linear association with number of types, with the highest value around 35 years (p< 0.001); so did the number of recent sexual partners (p=0.033), which showed a fairly linear effect on the log-scale. The high prevalence of HR-HPV types is associated with recent sexual behavior and age.
