the HIM study

Risk factors for incident condyloma in a multinational cohort of men: the HIM study.

Factors strongly associated with condyloma were incident infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 and 11 (hazard ratio [HR], 12.42 [95% confidence interval {CI}, 3.78-40.77]), age (HR, 0.43 [95% CI, .26-.77]; 45-70 vs 18-30 years), high lifetime number of female partners (HR, 5.69 [95% CI, 1.80-17.97]; ≥21 vs 0 partners), and number of male partners (HR, 4.53 [95% CI, 1.68-12.20]; ≥3 vs 0 partners). The results suggest that HPV types 6 and 11 and recent sexual behavior are strongly associated with incident condyloma.
