    im a bit confused about the types of HPV...so HPV 6 and 11 are the most common types that cause genital warts and 16 and 18 are the types that predispose to CIN and VIN...can someone tell me if this is correct? been lookin thru first aid and my books and this is the conclusion i came across...

    that's right.

    6 and 11 also are the viruses that cause Koilocytosis so if you see a picture of that, its 6 and 11 and its low risk for CA

    16 and 18 predispose to squamous cell CA, and 16 also predisposes to AdenoCA
