Abstract

This study examined the concordance of penile and oral human papillomavirus (HPV) infections in the United States. A total of 1683 men aged 18-59 years who participated in the 2013-2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and had results of oral and penile HPV DNA testing were examined. The prevalence of any HPV genotype was 45.3% on the penis, 11.2% in the oral cavity, and 8.8% at both sites. The prevalence of HPV in the oral cavity was higher among those with than among those without penile HPV infection (19.3% vs 4.4%; prevalence ratio, 4.37 [95% confidence interval, 2.66-7.16]). The prevalence of ≥1 genotype-concordant HPV infection was 3.2% and was associated with sexual behavior, independent of demographic characteristics and smoking status. Sexual behavior may partly explain the observed association between penile and oral HPV infections.
