Abstract : The role of viruses in the etiology of human oral cancer is critically reviewed. Available evidences show a positive correlation for human oral cancer with human papilloma virus (HPV), herpes simplex virus (HSV) and human herpes virus type-6 (HHV-6), having strongest association with HPV. These viruses may act alone or in combination with other carcinogens in the genesis of head and neck malignancies.
