Abstract

A case of pulmonary Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) in a 41-year old renal transplant recipient is reported. Three years after transplantation, routine chest X-ray showed multiple nodular opacities of small size in both lungs; cultural and serological tests for pathogenic microorganisms were all negative. At dermatologic examination a small papulonodular lesion on the right leg was detected, which had the typical clinical and histologic appearance of KS. The diagnosis of pulmonary KS was confirmed by open lung biopsy. As the lesions persisted despite the withdrawal of immunosuppressive therapy, chemotherapy was started with mithoxantrone and etoposide obtaining a remission of the disease.
