BACKGROUND Human papillomaviruses (HPV) have been implicated strongly in the pathogenesis of human squamous cell carcinomas, especially of anogenital carcinomas. Some pathologic changes of the esophagus may be one of the candidates for HPV etiology, but the role of HPV infections in the carcinogenesis of the esophagus remains to be clarified. METHODS To elucidate the association of HPV with carcinogenesis of the esophagus, 45 biopsy samples of esophageal squamous cell carcinomas were examined… CONTINUE READING
