Table 2 Multiplicity of HPV infection according to histopathology

From: A portrait of single and multiple HPV type infections in Brazilian women of different age strata with squamous or glandular cervical lesions

HPV infection Squamous lesions Glandular lesions (AIS and CC)
CIN1 CIN2 CIN3 and CC
n (%) n (%) n (%) n (%)
HPV detectable 60 (74) 55 (90) 154 (95) 18 (78)
  Single type (ST) 26 (43) 22 (40) 77 (50) 13 (72)
Multiple type (MT) 34 (57) 33 (60) 77 (50) 5 (28)
HPV not detectable 22 (26) 6 (10) 8 (5) 5 (22)
TOTAL 82 (100) 61 (100) 162 (100) 23 (100)
  1. CIN: cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, CC: invasive cervical câncer, AIS: in situ adenocarcinoma. HPV infections, whether single type or multiple type, did not differ in women with CIN1 or CIN2 or worse (p = 0.66). The prevalence of MT infection was significantly higher in women with CIN2 or worse compared to those with glandular lesions (p = 0.04).
