Abstract

As a proportion of AIDS-defining illnesses, Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) decreased from 1987-89 to 1993-94 in homosexual and bisexual men in all European regions and in the United States. Albeit underestimated, AIDS KS rates in the general male population at ages 25-49 are higher than those of the majority of cancer sites in the same age group.
