  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 16-year-old girl, who had had Kaposi's sarcoma which developed on Klipplel-Trenaunay's pha-comatosis was reported.

The review of Kaposi's sarcoma on the reported 38 cases in Japan was performed. In regard of the complications on Kaposi's sarcoma, there are many reports of malignant tumors, which derived from the mesenchymal tissue, Hodgkin's disease and lymphosarcoma, etc. Some authors believe Kaposi's asarcom will originate from the reticuloendothelial system, but others from the vascular system.

Kaposi's sarcoma developed on Klippel-Trenaunay's phacomatosis has never been reported in Japan.

Our case may suggest that this sarcoma will originate from the vascular system.

Our case was operated in the early stage, irradiated with x-ray and treated with cyclophosphamide.
