Abstract: Background: Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted disease associated with the development of cervical premalignant lesion. There is a connection between transmission of Human Immuno Deficiency Virus (HIV) and HPV, therefore the possibility of cervical premalignant lesions among women. This study therefore undertook to detect HPV in HIV infected women to establish the correlation. Methodology: One hundred (100) women infected with the Human Immune deficiency Virus (HIV) and one hundred (100) non - infected women were used for the study. Cervical smears were collected from each of them and stained using the standard Papanicolaou’s method and then examined microscopically for HPV haloes. Result: The prevalence of HPV among HIV positive women in the study was 9.0% .The prevalence of HPV among HIV negative women was 6.0%. Prevalence rates according to age revealed 12.5 % and 11.0% in ages 21 – 30 and 31 – 40 years respectively, while 41 – 50 and 51 – 60 years recorded 6.7% and 5.2% respectively. No infection was recorded above ages 60 in HIV positive women. Among HIV negative women, a prevalence rate of 6.7% and 8.3% was recorded in ages 21 – 30 and 31 – 40 years respectively. Ages 41 – 50 years recorded 4.2%. No HPV infection was recorded above age 50. Conclusion: Infection with HIV is an important risk factor for HPV and the development of HPV associated lesions.
