This report details the histopathologic findings in a woman who acquired the human papillomavirus 6/11 in her late teens and developed papilloma/condyloma of the nasopharynx, oropharynx, anogenital region, urethra, and urinary bladder. General evaluations of immune function reveal no defect, and there was no evidence of HIV infection. The morphologic expression of HPV 6/11 infection appears to be completely dependent on the mucosal epithelium affected. The complete spectrum of benign and premalignant epithelial changes induced by the human papillomavirus family - papilloma, verrucae, condyloma acuminatum, epithelial hyperplasia, and dysplasia - were present in this patient with a single papillomavirus infection. We postulate that this patient has a specific immune deficiency that limits her ability to control local infection and spread of the papillomavirus.
