Although it is classified as a rare malignant tumor, the incidence rate is gradually increasing worldwide. It should be noted that anal HPV infection varies greatly by sex and sexual orientation, with the highest prevalence of anal HPV infection being found in HIV-positive patients or men who have sex with men.
