About these proceedings

Introduction

Genital Papillomavirus Infections provides a state of the art survey on the clinical aspects, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of genital papillomavirus infections, written by experts in the respective fields. Two introductory sections on epidemiology and molecular biology are followed by chapters on new techniques for the detection of genital papillomaviruses and their presence in genital carcinomas. Contributions on the clinical aspects cover infections of the cervix, male and female external genitalia, urethra, and oral cavity. A discussion of the immunobiology of papillomaviruses ends in an evaluation of the prospects for vaccination, and the application of podophyllotoxin, cryosurgery, laser therapy, and interferon treatment are described in detail. This book is unique in placing a strong emphasis on clinical aspects of genital papillomavirus infections. Mainly addressed to clinicians, it provides practical guidelines on methods for their diagnosis and treatment.
