The involvement of human papillomavirus in carcinogenesis of colorectal cancer is a contentious issue. The presented meta-analysis was performed to systematize the currently available research results on the matter. The analysis was based on the data from 19 studies to assess the association of HPV infection with colorectal cancer. According to the obtained data, researchers determined the statistically significant level of HPV infection in tumor tissue of CRC and the resulting relative risk of developing CRC with HPV infection to be RR (95% CI) = 2.97 (1.42–6.22) with p = 0.0039.
