Infection

    

  • Perinatal
    transmission of human papillomavirus from gravidas with latent
    infections.

    P Tenti, R Zappatore, P Milgliora et al)
    (Univ of Pavia, Italy;)

    Obstet Gynecol 93: 475-479,1999.

      

    Mother
    to child transmission in the perinatal period may be
    a route of human papillomavirus (HPV) infections.

      

    711
    pairs of mothers of newborn were studied. 
    Nasopharyngeal aspirates were HPV negative in
    all 11 infants in whom membrane rupture occurred
    less than 2 hours before delivery.

      

    The
    risk of HPV transmission to the oropharyngeal mucosa
    of the infants of women with latent HPV infection is
    low.  Time
    between amnion rupture and delivery appears to be
    critical in predicting transmission.  Infants who are HPV positive should be considered
    contaminated instead of infected since virus is
    cleared within several months after birth.
