Description: This is the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference source on papillomavirus-associated human pathology, which examines the molecular biology of the infections and discusses diagnosis and treatment methods. Abundantly illustrated, it covers all aspects of human papillomaviruses from molecular biology and pathogenesis of HPV-associated diseases, as well as natural history and epidemiology, to a detailed study of the role of these viruses as potential etiological agents of a wide spectrum of both benign and malignant human tumours. While the main focus is on HPV infections of the genital tract, lesions of the skin, respiratory tract, the digestive system, the urinary tract and the eye are also covered in detail. Written by two authors who are internationally renowned for their work, it will be invaluable for both clinicians and researchers working in the fields of gynecology, pathology, sexually transmitted diseases, genito-urinary medicine, oncology, dermatology, otorhinolaryngology, and cancer epidemiology.
