Summary: Subclinical flat cervical warts are commonly recognized by means of colposcopy. These warty lesions frequently contain cellular atypia of a varying degree showing all the features of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) together with the features of wart virus infection e.g. koilocytosis. Human papillomavirus (HPV) antigens and DNA have been found in these lesions which can be called atypical condylomas. The presence of such markers in lesions regarded as having neoplastic potential implicates HPV in cervical carcinogenesis.
