Abstract

Human papillomavirus (HPV) genomes were identified in two cases of verrucous carcinoma of the vagina, using Southern blot DNA hybridization under low-stringency conditions. Type (group) 6 HPV DNA (HPV-6) was identified, using molecularly cloned HPV-1 through HPV-6 DNA probes under high-stringency conditions in both cases. In addition, DNA extract in one case hybridized with HPV-1, HPV-3, and HPV-4 DNA probes. No HPV structural proteins were demonstrated in either case by immunocytochemical tests, using HPV antibodies. In one case viruslike intranuclear particles were observed by transmission electron microscopy. These two cases suggest a strong associative relationship between HPV and verrucous carcinoma (Ackerman) of the lower part of the genital tract.
