Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a sexually transmitted virus, is usually found in the genital tract and causes various lesions at the mucosae of both men and women. It is considered as a causative factor of cervical cancer even if all women infected by HPV will not develop the disease. This article reviews diagnostic aspects and therapeutic alternatives for the treatment of HPV infected females, as well as aspects concerning the prophylactic HPV vaccines.
