The study aims to identify the degree of infection and co-infection with HPV strains in people of different ages, to assess the risk associated with lack of immunization of the Romanian population. In this study we are looking at the prevalence and relationship of the different types of HPV strains present in the 37 cases with suspected HPV infection that were analyzed, in the period 2018-2019, within the Prodiagnostic analysis laboratory, in Constanța, Romania. Of the total number of people analyzed for the case study, 45.94% (17 out of 37) tested positive for HPV infection. The analysis of the frequency of strains by risk categories shows that the highest percentage was 48% in the case of high-risk strains, followed by the percentage of frequency of strains with unknown risk (44%) and that of low-risk strains (8 %); The analysis by age indicates the maximum infection rate recorded belonging to the age group between 23 and 34 years. The association between strains and the 50% frequency indicates an important aspect of the infection as well as important data for diagnosis and treatment and involves more rigorous monitoring of patients with such associations, the risk increases with the associations.
