World prevalence of HPV in men without visible genital lesions is reported until 73%. Genital warts incidence show an increasing tendence in the world. Anal and penis cancers apparition's frequency were about a 50 and 80/85% respectively. Results: HPV 16 and 18 were the most frequent in pre-maligns and maligns lesions, while the genotypes 6 and 11 were similar behaviour in anogenital warts. The circumcision and the use of condom showed a protector role so much to acquire HPV infections in men as the appearing of female's anogenital lesions associated to this viruses. HPV infections are highly transmittable, being the man an important fact in this event, because he can be a virus reservoir even if the infection is in latent or subclinical condition at the anogenital mucosa. Conclutions: there is a strong association between HPV infection and benign , pre-maligns and maligns lesions appearing, in the male anogenital tract.
