Kaposi sarcoma is an oligoclonal HHV8-driven vascular proliferation that was first described in 1872 as an "idiopathic multiple pigmented sarcoma of the skin" by a Viennese dermatologist Dr. Moriz Kaposi (1).

Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) represents the most common AIDS-defining neoplasm. Only very few studies regarding the course and treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated KS have been carried ...
Primary Epithelioid Angiosarcoma of Finger Masquerading as Epithelioid Hemangioma: Report of a Case and Analysis of Mutational Pattern in Epithelioid Hemangiomas and Angiosarcomas by Next-generation Sequencing.
We report an unusual case of epithelioid angiosarcoma (AS) mimicking an epithelioid hemangioma (EH) and analyze mutational patterns in EHs and ASs.
A 26-year-old female patient with a history of intravenous drug abuse, diagnosed with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) 6 months before. AIDS defining disease was Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumon...
Non-AIDS Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is extremely rare in Japan, but highly endemic in Okinawa, especially in Miyako Islands. We aimed to elucidate the exact incidence and cause of this high prevalence.
To determine the safety and tolerance of interleukin-4 (IL-4) in patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma. To determine the effects of IL-4 on tumor growth in patients with AIDS-related...
To assess toxicity and determine the MTD of intravenous TNP-470 administered weekly in patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma. To assess pharmacokinetics and tumor response of the dru...
To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Stealth liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX-SL) in the long-term treatment of AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) in patients who previously...
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to use IM862 to treat Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) in AIDS patients.
Kaposi sarcoma (KS) has an unpredictable course, patients with severe KS and low CD4 counts (
A prodromal phase of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Laboratory criteria separating AIDS-related complex (ARC) from AIDS include elevated or hyperactive B-cell humoral immune responses, compared to depressed or normal antibody reactivity in AIDS; follicular or mixed hyperplasia in ARC lymph nodes, leading to lymphocyte degeneration and depletion more typical of AIDS; evolving succession of histopathological lesions such as localization of Kaposi's sarcoma, signaling the transition to the full-blown AIDS.
A species in the genus RHADINOVIRUS, subfamily GAMMAHERPESVIRINAE, isolated from patients with AIDS-related and "classical" Kaposi sarcoma.
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Human immune-response, D-related antigen encoded by the D-locus on chromosome 6 and found on lymphoid cells. It is associated with Kaposi sarcoma in AIDS and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
A disseminated vesicular-pustular eruption caused by the herpes simplex virus (HERPESVIRUS HOMINIS), the VACCINIA VIRUS, or Varicella zoster (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). It is usually superimposed on a preexisting, inactive or active, atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC).
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
