Answer

Several of the epidermotropic human papillomaviruses (HPVs) cause condyloma acuminatum.

HPV types 6 and 11 most commonly are isolated, but many of the more than 60 types of HPV potentially cause condyloma.

Male sexual partners of women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia often have infections with the same viral type.
