Genital infection with high-risk human papillomavirus HR HPV associates with increased risk of developing pre- cancerous lesions, such as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia CIN. The objective of this pilot study conducted in north-east Croatia was to determine the prevalence of HPV genital infection in women with abnormal cervical cytology and to determine its association with their age and HPV genotypes. From March 2009 to December 2011, cervical swabs from 100 women were analysed for HR HPV infection AMPLICOR HPV Test, Roche Diagnostics and genotyped for high risk HR, intermediate IR and low risk LR HPVs Linear Array HPV Genotyping Test, Roche Diagnostics. The most prevalent HR genotypes in women with CIN were HPV 16 27.6%, HPV 31 11.8%, HPV 51 and HPV 52 10.2% each. The most prevalent IR genotypes were HPV 66 30% and HPV 62 23.3%. The most prevalent LR genotype was HPV 6 20.3%. Women between 21 and 25 years of age showed the highest rate of HPV infection 44.2%. Moreover, women younger than 35 years showed a significant association p
