Abstract

Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is the most frequent sexually transmitted diseasse which can, in long term, lead to development of cervical, vaginal or vulvar carcinoma as well as genital warts in untreated patients. HPV infection is one of the main publichealth problems. Education and recommendation for vaccination in the early adolescent age in both girls and boys, as well as secondary prevention will create conditions for the erradication of HPV infection with the types of HPV which are responsible for the most frequent variations of active diseasse (types 6,11,16,18). In this article we describe the route of infection, spreading and manifestations as well as possibilities of primary and secondary prevention.

 hr Humani papiloma virus (HPV): Prevencija – cijepljenje – liječenje

Zaraza humanim papiloma virusom najčešća je spolno prenosiva bolest u većini zemalja koja, ukoliko se ne liječi, može dovesti do razvoja novotvorina na vratu maternice, rodnice, muškog genitalnog sustava, kao i pojave genitalnih bradavica, te se time nameće kao značajan javnozdravstveni problem. U cilju sprečavanja razvoja bolesti, uz prethodno provedene edukacijske postupke, uvađanjem cjepiva te preporukama za njegovu uporabu u ranoj adolescentnoj dobi, kako kod djevojčica tako i kod dječaka, stvorili su se uvjeti za onemogućavanje nastanka bolesti izazvanih tipovima HPV-a koji su najodgovorniji za nastanak aktivne bolesti (tipovi 6, 11, 16 i 18). Primarna prevencija, edukacija i primjena cjepiva, uz nastavak sekundarne prevencije te odgovorno spolno ponašanje, najbolji su put priječenja zaraze HPV-om. U ovom preglednom radu navedeni su načini nastanka zaraze, njena rasprostranjenost i manifestacije, te mogućnosti primarne i sekundarne prevencije.
