• A 68-year-old man had lesions of Kaposi's sarcoma that developed continually in a localized area after excisional surgery, electrosurgery, and radiotherapy of previous lesions. His lesions cleared with intralesional injections of vincristine sulfate without any systemic and only minor local side effects. Newly developed lesions, which did not occur on the sites of previous treatment, were also responsive to this form of therapy.
