Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infections in women can occur from benign disease to malignant growth. These infections are sexually transmitted diseases. We both try to understand the HPV oncogenesis on the cervical epithelia and to prevent the cervical cancer through treatment of precancerous lesions. So, it is very important the early diagnosis of this disease because of its incidence and its malignancy potential. The aim of this paper was to establish the incidence of HPV infections in women from Câmpulung area and the distribution of cases according to their age and residence. The diagnosis of HPV disease was established by multiplex PCR. The incidence of HPV infection was 13.57% (out of 258 patients), the most frequent HPV genotype was type 16. The results were correlated with histopathological diagnosis. Regarding the age and residence distribution, the most cases were occur in women aged 31 - 40 (48.57%) and in women from rural areas.
