Abstract

Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV)-induced lesions rarely develop in the urethral meatus (UM); however, their eradication can be problematic. Methods: A total of 22 patients with anogenital warts (AGWs) in the UM region and 22 patients with AGWs located at other anatomical sites were included in this cross-sectional study. The presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) types in biopsy samples was determined using the HPV Easy typing kit (GenID GmbH, Germany). Results: Although the patients in the AGW group with involvement of the UM had a higher incidence of reported multiple sexual partners (63.6 vs. 40.9), larger meatus size (81.8 vs. 36.4), and more frequent anal (36.4 vs. 18.2) or unprotected sexual contact (68.2 vs. 36.4) than those in the AGW group without UM involvement, only the duration of lesions (p = 0.04) and meatus size (p = 0.004) were significantly different in both groups. Low-risk HPV types were found in 75.0 and 69.2 of patients in the AGW groups with and without UM involvement, respectively. Conclusion: We found that a larger UM size was more prone to the development of meatus AGWs; however, being married, delaying sexual debut, and avoidance of multiple sexual partners seemed to be associated with a decreased risk of development of AGWs, especially within the UM region. © 2017, Slovenian Medical Society.
