Introduction: Condylomata acuminata are caused by various genotypes of human papilloma viruses (HPV). Methods: We assessed the frequency of 33 different HPV DNA types in 49 patients with condylomata acuminata by the polymerase chain reaction technique. Results: Forty-two percent of the patients were infected with low-risk genotypes, and 21% of the patients tested positive for high-risk genotypes. Multiple infections with low- and high-risk genotypes were detectable in 36% of the patients. Conclusion: As our results are in line with previous large-scale reports, our data might serve as a basis for monitoring the efficacy of HPV vaccination in Austria.
