HPV in a Newborn Baby

The birth canal is the place where a baby encounters HPV for the first time. A newborn baby is usually asymptomatic after birth. In children, infections are observed mostly in the form of laryngeal papillomatosis or rarely in the form of warts in the anus and genital area. Laryngeal papillomatosis is a disease characterized by the formation of warts and pedunculated papillomas on the larynx (throat), which develops between 2 and 5 years of age. Mostly HPV Type 6 and Type 11 are responsible for the disease that has an overall prevalence of 1.4 per 100000 births. It may involve the epiglottis, trachea and even bronchia. Laryngeal papillomatosis is one of the most common causes of airway obstruction and snoring in childhood.
