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.
