Kaposi's sarcoma before and during a human immunodeficiency virus epidemic in Tanzanian children.

Kaposi's sarcoma before and during a human immunodeficiency virus epidemic in Tanzanian children. With the onset of AIDS increased frequency of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) has been reported. However, there is no case-based comparison of childhood (<14 years) KS before and during the HIV pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa. Here we report on the Tanzanian cancer registry data of pediatric KS in Tanzania and implications with regard to pathogenic factors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Pediatric infectious disease journal Pubmed
