Abstract
Summary Patients with human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated anogenital cancers had a 4·3-fold increased risk of tonsillar squamous-cell carcinoma. These cancer types also have histopathological and molecular biological similarities. Thus HPV may be aetiologically important in tonsillar carcinogenesis.
