Introduction: The importance of human papillomavirus (HPV) in developing of cervical cancer has been proved. Among HPVs, human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) is accounted for in the first place in cervical cancer. So screening the human papillomavirus type 16 particularly is important. This study investigated the presence of HPV-16 in the ThinPrep samples collected from 11 provinces of Iran. Methods: This cross sectional study was conducted on 108 ThinPrep samples which were included HPV DNA. The DNA of samples was extracted by Invitek kit. Then HPV-16 genome was sought using primers corresponding to the parts of the E6/E7 genome of HPV-16 by Nested PCR method. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 13. Results: 25 of samples (27 out of 108) were positive for HPV-16. Kerman province had the most rate of HPV-16 positive with having four HPV DNA positive samples and Qazvin province had the lowest rate of HPV-16 positive with having seven HPV DNA positive. Conclusion: HPV-16 is the most important and prevalent type of HPV among Iranian woman and identification of the other high-risk HPV types is highly recommended.
