Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 59-yr-old male patient with multiple myeloma (MM) who developed Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is described. The KS appeared 18 mth after the diagnosis of MM and 1 mth after the treatment was changed from cyclophosphamide to melphalan. The treatment with melphalan was discontinued and the spread of the KS was arrested by irradiation and bleomycin. 1 mth after the melphalan was restarted, the KS advanced. The patient died 28 mth after the diagnosis of MM and 10 mth after KS had developed. The association of KS and MM is discussed and the previously reported cases are reviewed. A possible connection between the treatment with melphalan and the development of KS is proposed.
