Kaposi's sarcoma is a rare angioproliferative tumour derived from endothelial cells. For almost 30 years, two dermatologists have been dedicating their professional life to the study of this disorder, and more precisely to its viral, immunological and therapeutic aspects. Their experience, based on the evaluation and treatment of 710 patients with classic or iatrogenic Kaposi's sarcoma in a dedicated outpatient service, led them to the proposal of a clinical classification and a variety of effective approaches for treating this disease. Much of this large experience has been gained by collaborating with other clinicians and researchers, and the hope is that the results of these precious interactions will be even more brilliant in the future.
