Introduction: The aetiology of inverted papillomas is still not known. Current thinking favours a viral agent in particular. Objective: To widen viral research to "Human Herpes Viridae n° 8" (HHV 8). Material and method: 14 patients were included in a prospective study over a 38 months period. The average age was 49.6 years. The technique used is the PCR. Results: No samples revealed the presence of HHV n°8. Conclusion: The virus "human herpes viridae" was found in no samples, but as long as the etiopathogeny of the inverted papilloma is unknown. Further viral research is needed.
