Abstract

The title, Kaposi's Sarcoma: A Text and Atlas, is somewhat misleading as this textbook covers not only Kaposi's sarcoma but also the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. The text is divided into two parts. The first and most important section of the book is dedicated to the discussion of Kaposi's sarcoma. Each chapter covers a particular aspect of the disease. For example, the first chapter explains the causes and histogenesis of Kaposi's sarcoma. The second chapter describes Dr Moritz Kaposi's life and the historic events surrounding his description of this disease. Dr Kaposi's original photographs and writings on the subject are faithfully reproduced in the current text. Chapters 4 and 5, which cover clinical and histologic aspects, are in themselves worth the price of the book. The different stages of Kaposi's sarcoma (macules, papules, plaques, and tumors) as well as a number of pathologic conditions that mimic the disease are thoroughly discussed.
