Verrucous carcinoma of the larynx is a distinct and uncommon variant of well-differentiated squamous cell-carcinoma. The authors hybridized in situ a case of laryngeal verrucous carcinoma with DNA prebes to humman papillomavirus (HPV) 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33 and 35. The DNAs from the verrucous carcinoma of larynx hybridized with mixed DNA probes HPV-16/18 and 31/33/35. In addition, there was an evidence of HPV infection based on hybridization with mixed DNA probe HPV-6/11 in the adjacent papilloma tissue. By in situ DNA hybridization techniques, we clearly demonstrated human papillomavirus (HPV-16/18, and 31/33/35) related sequences in this neoplasm. These findings suggest the role of HPV-6/11 in the development of laryngeal papilloma ad HPV-16/18 and 31/33/35 probably on the progression to verrucous carcinoma.
