Synopsis: 
Human papilloma virus (HPV) can be the aetiologic factor in the benign or malignant oesophageal epithelium. Nested PCR was performed for detection of HPV in non-cancer oesophageal lesions. A third (33.7%) of samples were infected with HPV DNA. This can lead to cell changes that over many years may develop into cancer.
