Use of a condom does restrict (up to 70% according to all publications) but does not completely eliminate the risk of HPV transmission. The reasons are that condoms do not cover the entire surface of the penis and that HPV infection is localized, frequently with non-visible lesions in the entire lower genital tract, the perineum and the perianal area.
