The data have been analyzed in the review of the literature on the epidemiology, clinical course, current approaches in the chemo-radiotherapy of patients with virus-associated tumors (head and neck cancer, cervix cancer and anal cancer). The presence of a complex interaction of human papillomavirus, human immunodeficiency virus with the clinical course of the tumors with mentioned localizations and the multidirectional influence of the presence/ absence of the virus on the results of chemo-radiotherapy, has been demonstrated. The perspectives of possible changes in standard treatment protocols of patients with virus-associated tumors, including using new approaches in target- and immunotherapy, are shown.
