Arch Dermatol. 1980;116(11):1280-1282. doi:10.1001/archderm.1980.01640350070019

• Immunosuppressed patients are at risk of acquiring Kaposi's sarcoma. We describe here a 66-year-old man with bronchial asthma who was receiving immunosuppressive medication (prednisone given for systemic effect) and in whom Kaposi's sarcoma developed. The literature on this subject is reviewed.
