Abstract The oral route of human papillomavirus (HPV) transmission is not fully understood. It has been suggested that genital infection can act as a reservoir for oral HPV infection. We investigated the presence of oral HPV DNA and anti-HPV IgA in the buccal cavity of patients with a histopathologic diagnosis of cervical HPV infection. One hundred women underwent oral clinical examinations to detect HPV-DNA by polymerase chain reaction and salivary anti-HPV IgA by indirect immunofluorescence. Information on the personal habits of all the women was collected in personal interviews. Our results showed that 99\% of the patients had no clinical manifestations of oral HPV. However, HPV DNA was detected in 81\% of oral mucosa samples, and anti-HPV IgA was detected in the saliva of 44\% of the patients. Consumption of alcoholic beverages was significantly associated with detection of oral HPV DNA and salivary anti-HPV IgA. Other behavioral risk factors associated with oral HPV and anti-HPV IgA are also discussed. In conclusion, patients with genital HPV infection are at risk for subclinical oral HPV infection. Thus, a molecular assay might be necessary to diagnose such infections.
