Prevalence and risk factors for high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL) in a community based cohort of homosexual men

Dorothy Machalek

Introduction: The incidence of human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated anal cancer is high in homosexual men, especially in the HIV-positive, but an understanding of the epidemiology of HSIL, the presumed precursor is lacking. We aimed to determine the prevalence and risk factors for HSIL in a community-recruited cohort of homosexual men.
