Background Several genes encoding different Th1 and Th2 cytokines may play crucial roles in host susceptibility to Condyloma acuminatum (CA). Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is a serum lectin that mediates complement activation, and it is a member of innate immune system. MBL gene polymorphisms are considered to be associated with several infectious diseases.
