Abstract

Two hundred eight cervical specimens from two groups of subjects, 165 nonpregnant women and 53 pregnant women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) of grades I to III, were positive by PCR analyses for human papillomaviruses (HPVs), adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV 2), and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) in 67, 6, and 4.1% of the cases, respectively. The presence of AAV 2 infection was more frequently associated with pregnancy (17 versus 2.4%) and HPV-positive cervices (odds ratio = 6.358) than HCMV was. Increased HPV infection was strongly associated (P < 0.001) with a higher CIN grade, but there is no evidence that AAV 2 and HCMV infections have any impact on CIN development.
