• Kaposi sarcoma is a rare disorder, usually controlled with conservative localized treatment. However, prognosis is serious for patients with aggressive cutaneous disease, and ominous for those with visceral involvement. Two cases of advanced Kaposi sarcoma are reviewed to illustrate a chemotherapeutic approach to patients with this disease. The first case represents a verified response of visceral Kaposi sarcoma to chemotherapy. The second provides an example of the control of aggressive dermatologic disease.
