Abstract Eleven oral verruca vulgaris specimens were examined for the presence of papillomavirus structural antigens by reaction with antibody to type‐common antigens and detection by the avidin‐biotin‐peroxidase complex method. The specimens were also examined by in situ hybridization with biotin‐labelled human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA to determine the specific HPV types present in the lesions. Six of the 11 specimens were positive for papillomavirus structural antigens. Of these 6, 5 hybridized to the HPV Type 2 (HPV2) probe and one to the HPV4 probe.
