Abstract Tonsillar squamous cell carcinomas (a total of 14) were examined both for the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA and for p53 alterations. General primer-mediated HPV polymerase chain reaction (GP-PCR) revealed the presence of HPV DNA in 12/14 cases. Subsequent typing by HPV type-specific PCR and sequence or hybridization analysis of GP-PCR products revealed DNA from HPV 16 in seven cases, from HPV 33 in two cases, and from HPV 7, HPV 16/33 and HPV 33/59 each in a single case. p53 immunohistochemistry performed on nine HPV containing tonsillar carcinomas using polyclonal serum CM-1 showed elevated p53 levels in four cases. These included 3/5 HPV 16 containing carcinomas and the HPV 33/59 containing carcinoma. Analysis of p53 mutations using denaturing
