Kaposi's sarcoma in an HIV-positive person successfully treated with paclitaxel(Medknow, 2009-05)Epidemic Kaposi's sarcoma is one of the malignant neoplasms, which can develop in HIV-infected patients. Although the prevalence of HIV infection is reported to be high in Asian countries, Kaposi's sarcoma is rarely reported.
