The aim of this study was to molecular identification of HPV genotypes in genital
wart patients in their blood samples in Babylon province-Iraq. This work was applied
on (40) genital wart patients admitted to the outpatient department of Dermatology
and Venereology in Merjan Medical City, Hilla-Iraq and private clinic during the
period from November (2013) to March (2014). The patients consist of (16 males and
24 females) with their age range (2-48) years, while (20) apparently health controls
which consist of (males and females) with age range approximately matched to
genital wart patients. Blood samples were collected from both patients and controls to
identify the genotypes of HPV by molecular methods by polymerase chain reaction
(PCR). The results of this study showed (15%) positive for HPV genotypes. The
positive results of HPV genotypes were (high risk group) for this virus.
