Sažetak
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the world, and anogenital warts are one of its various clinical manifestations. It has been shown that anogenital warts influence psychological status. The aims of this research were to evaluate the quality of life and illness perceptions and their relationship in patients with anogenital warts. Factors perceived as the main cause of their illness were also evaluated. Sixty male outpatients completed questionnaires: Brief Illness Perceptions Questionnaire and Quality of life in patients with anogenital warts. Aspects of the quality of life most affected by anogenital warts were fear of contagiousness, concern about illness and everyday activities. The results showed that there is a weak influence of the disease on quality of life with changed perception of the illness. Patients with anogenital warts showed inadequate knowledge about their illness. Psychological aspect of anogenital warts should not be neglected. Patient's education about HPV infection and their consequences should be emphasized.
