Objectives: Literature analysis the influence of HPV genital infection on the pregnancy outcome.
Methods: A series of studies and literature data were evaluated concerning the risk of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in pregnancy and the implication in premature birth.
Results: 6 studies were included in the paper. HPV alone or surgical interventions due to HPV infection were analized as a risk factor in the outcome of the pregnancy. The results of the studies varied. The 3 studies that analized HPV-related disease of the cervix concluded that HPV is incriminated in poor pregnancy outcome. 3 studies of the PPROM and HPV had different results. One study showed that HPV is not involved in pregnancy outcome, while the other two studies offered data, concluding that HPV is involved in premature birth.
Conclusion: Research in HPV involvement in premature birth offer precious data that may lead to new research area in the near future, with valuable results and influence in the pregnancy outcome.
