RESULTS:

In the 64 cases, 7 were positive for HPV infection by Luminex and PCR tests. 18 were positive for HPV16/18 E6 protein expression. The total positive rate was about 39. 1%.

CONCLUSION:

The high HPV infection rate in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma patients in the study indicated indirectly that the importance of the HPV infection in pathogenesis of the laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
