• Genital tract papillomas in five children were examined for the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA by molecular hybridization. Papillomavirus DNA was detected in each sample and was identified as HPV-6 (three cases), HPV-6 or HPV-11 (one case), or HPV-16 (one case). These viruses are the same as are responsible for genital papillomas (condylomata) of adults. The transmission of adult genital tract viruses to children occurs primarily by a venereal route but may occur by a nonvenereal route.
