Kaposi's Sarcoma of the Bulbar Conjunctiva

Kaposi's Sarcoma of the Bulbar Conjunctiva Abstract KAPOSI'S sarcoma is probably a neoplastic disorder of vascular origin. It is now known to have a worldwide distribution, although most cases have been described in Eastern Europeans and Africans. The disease involves chiefly adult males in their mid to older decades, but a large number of cases have been found among African children. Most cases have been found involving skin, but histologically similar lesions have been found in almost all viscera. Recently the disease has been described in subjects solely involving lymph nodes.1 Another interesting feature is that Kaposi's sarcoma is often associated with malignant tumors of other types. In 76 patients in a series from Memorial Hospital in New York City, 24% had other tumors, most of them being tumors of the hematopoietic system (unpublished data). A number of case reports of Kaposi's sarcoma involving eyelids and conjunctiva have been published.2-7 In virtually all the cases References 1. Lee SCH, Moore OS: Kaposi's sarcoma of lymph nodes .

Abstract

Abstract KAPOSI'S sarcoma is probably a neoplastic disorder of vascular origin. It is now known to have a worldwide distribution, although most cases have been described in Eastern Europeans and Africans. The disease involves chiefly adult males in their mid to older decades, but a large number of cases have been found among African children. Most cases have been found involving skin, but histologically similar lesions have been found in almost all viscera. Recently the disease has been described in subjects solely involving lymph nodes.1 Another interesting feature is that Kaposi's sarcoma is often associated with malignant tumors of other types. In 76 patients in a series from Memorial Hospital in New York City, 24% had other tumors, most of them being tumors of the hematopoietic system (unpublished data). A number of case reports of Kaposi's sarcoma involving eyelids and conjunctiva have been published.2-7 In virtually all the cases References 1. Lee SCH, Moore OS: Kaposi's sarcoma of lymph nodes .
