Background: Unfortunately, despite recent scientific advances the cause of malignant melanoma is not identified. The incidence of malignant melanoma increases and malignant melanoma continues to represent a significant individual and public health challenge. Objectives: In this systematic review studies were re-analyzed so that some new inferences can be drawn. Statistical Analysis: The method of the conditio per quam relationship was used to proof the hypothesis whether the presence of human papillomavirus guarantees the presence of malignant melanoma. In other words, if human papillomavirus is present, then malignant melanoma is present too. The mathematical formula of the causal relationship k was used to proof the hypothesis, whether there is a cause effect relationship between human papillomavirus and malignant melanoma. Significance was indicated by a p-value of less than 0.05. Results: The studies analyzed support the null-hypothesis that the presence of human papillomavirus guarantees the presence of malignant melanoma. In other words, human papillomavirus is a conditio per quam of malignant melanoma while the cause effect relationship between human papillomavirus and malignant melanoma was highly significant. Conclusions: Human papillomavirus is a sufficient condition of malignant melanoma. Human papillomavirus is a cause of malignant melanoma. Keywords: Human papillomavirus, malignant melanoma, cause effect relationship, causality
