Probably still HPV: "Intraepithelial lesion" on pap smear (also called dysplasia) is due almost entirely to HPV. The test for HPV sometimes is wrong. The important thing is that your abnormal pap smear be evaluated and treated to be sure it doesn't progress to more serious disease or even cancer. Follow up with the doctor or clinic where your pap was done and follow their advice.
