The purpose of this study was to examine differences in comorbidities in patients with OPSCC and known HPV-DNA.MATERIAL AND METHODS: We included patients diagnosed with OPSCC in Eastern Denmark in 2000-2014. Patients were linked to the Danish National Patient Register to identify comorbidities based on the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) at time of diagnosis and following cancer treatment. Patients were age-and sex-matched in a 1:10 ratio with a reference group and stratified according to HPV-status.RESULTS: In total 1,499 patients (55.0{\%} HPV+) and 14,990 controls were included. Significantly more HPV+ patients had no comorbidities compared to HPV- patients at time of diagnosis (RR: 1.5 (1.3;1.6), n = HPV+: 522, HPV-: 302) and following treatment (RR 1.5 (1.4;1.6), n = HPV+: 342, HPV-: 142). Most prevalent comorbidity was malignancy not including OPSCCs. HPV+ patients had an increased risk of having AIDS before their OPSCC diagnosis compared to the reference population (OR: 4.8 (1.8;12.9)). HPV- patients had increased risk of multiple comorbidities including cerebrovascular disease (OR: 1.9 (1.4;2.5)), peripheral vascular disease (OR: 1.7 (1.9;3.7)), dementia (OR: 2.9 (1.4;5.8)), ulcer disease (OR: 2.6 (1.9;3.5)), liver disease, mild (OR: 9.5 (7.0;13.0)) and severe (OR: 13.9 (5.8;22.8)).CONCLUSION: This study showed that HPV- patients had more comorbidities than HPV+ patients at the diagnosis time and following treatment. Irrespective of HPV-status, OPSCC patients had a significant increased risk of (secondary) malignancy compared to the reference population.",
