abstract

  • The presence of HPV DNA was found to be significantly associated only with those penile SCC exhibiting basaloid changes. Furthermore, HPV DNA sequences tended to be associated with higher grade and more aggressive tumor localized to the glans penis. The low frequency of HPV in penile SCC implies that only a small proportion of these cancers arise from HPV-associated penile SIL.
