Abstract

Aim Persistent infection with 1 of 14 high-risk genotypes human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes is the crucial for the development of high-grade cervical cancer precursors. The reassuring management of women with cytology negative, high-risk HPV (HrHPV) positive is important especially after the widespread use of HPV testing either as a cotest. The aim of our study was to compare the colposcopic biopsy results of women with HPV 16/18 with other Hr-HPV genotypes and determine positive predictive values (PPV) for CIN2+ of other HR HPV genotypes.
