Abstract

We report the case of a patient with Kaposi's sarcoma after kidney transplantation. Despite the discontinuation of azathioprine and a reduction in the cyclosporin dosage, the disease continued to evolve, and antineoplastic treatment became necessary. After 14 cycles of vinorelbine chemotherapy, there was a 75% regression of the initial lesions, despite the continuation of cyclosporin A.
