Author: P. Stanko, P. Kruzliak, P. Labas

In these patients may be oral-genital contact and human papillomavirus infection the major risk factor for oral carcinogenesis. Aim of this review is to point out this fact in correlation with clinical studies and clinical conclusion for medical practice (Fig. 1, Ref. 32).

Keywords: head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma, human papilloma virus infection, oral-genital contact, ethiopathogenesis.
