Background: Several studies have documented human papillomavirus (HPV) in extra-cervical tumors. We aimed to detect HPV type 16 and HPV other than type 16 (OT-16) DNA in esophageal papilloma and esophagus squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) samples and to compare clinicopathological features of HPV positive and negative patients.
