New Onset of Kaposi Sarcoma in a Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1-Infected Homosexual Man, Despite Early Antiretroviral Treatment, Sustained Viral Suppression, and Immune Restoration


von Braun, A; Braun, D L; Kamarachev, J; Gunthard, H F (2014). New Onset of Kaposi Sarcoma in a Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1-Infected Homosexual Man, Despite Early Antiretroviral Treatment, Sustained Viral Suppression, and Immune Restoration. Open Forum Infectious Diseases, 1(1):ofu005.

Abstract

This is a rare case of new onset Kaposi sarcoma in a man infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and receiving antiretroviral treatment since primary HIV infection, with normal CD4+ cell count and suppressed viral load. The presentation questions the general understanding of Kaposi sarcoma as an acquired immune deficiency syndrome-defining disease occurring predominantly in severely immunocompromised patients infected with HIV.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
