Abstract

There are compelling molecular and epidemiological data which indicate that infection with certain genital human papillomaviruses (HPVs), such as HPV 16 and HPV 18, has a critical role in initial changes that lead to cervical and probably other anogenital cancers. These observations prompted us to investigate the prevalence of cervical infection with genital human papillomaviruses in Tunisia. We used the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect and type HPV DNA. The prevalence of HPV infection in a population of 106 Tunisian women recruited at the Offices Nationaux de la Famille et de Population (ONFP) was 13.6%. Molecular HPV typing indicated a high prevalence of HPV at high oncogenic risk; Our results indicate that the infection with genital human papillomaviruses is frequent in the Tunisian population.
