Kaposi’S Sarcoma

(Kaposi’s Sakom; multiple idiopathic hemorrhagic sarcoma))

Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) is a multicenter vascular tumor, which is caused by herpes virus type. 8 It can occur in the form of classical, AIDS-associated, endemic (in Africa), and iatrogenic (z. B. after organ transplantation). The diagnosis is made by biopsy. The treatment of indolent superficial lesions by cryosurgery, electrocautery, excision or irradiation with fast electrons. Radiation therapy is reserved for broader forms. In the AIDS-associated form Antivirals are most effective.

KS is apparent to an infection of the endothelial cells with the human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8) in response. The probability of Kaposi’s sarcoma in HHV-8-infected patients taking immunosuppression (v. A. AIDS drugs and after organ transplantation) significantly. The spindle-shaped tumor cells reminiscent of smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts and myofibroblasts.

Classification Classic KS This form preferentially occurs in older (> 60 years) men of Italian, Jewish and Eastern European ancestry to. It runs indolent and usually goes hand in hand with only a few lesions on the skin of the legs, at <10% it comes to organ involvement. This form does not run fatal in general.
