    Genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States, with an estimated 6.2 million persons becoming newly infected every year. More than 100 HPV types have been identified, over 40 of which can infect the genital area. HPV types are classified by their association with cancer. Non-oncogenic, or low-risk HPV types, such as HPV 6 or 11, can cause (1) benign or low-grade abnormalities of cervical cells, (2) anogenital warts, and (3) a disease of the respiratory tract called recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP). Oncogenic, or high-risk HPV types, including types 16 and 18, can cause intraepithelial neoplasia of the anogenital region, including cervical, vulvar, vaginal, penile, and anal cancers as well as some oropharyngeal cancers.
