Aetiological parallel between tonsillar and anogenital squamous-cell carcinomas.

Abstract

Patients with human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated anogenital cancers had a 4.3-fold increased risk of tonsillar squamous-cell carcinoma. These cancer types also have histopathological and molecular biological similarities. Thus HPV may be aetiologically important in tonsillar carcinogenesis.
