UNILATERAL KAPOSI SARCOMA IN A PATIENT WITH PULMONARY TUBERCULOSIS AND HISTORY OF BREAST NEOPLASM SARCOM KAPOSI UNILATERAL LA O PACIENTĂ CU TUBERCULOZĂ PULMONARĂ ȘI ANTECEDENTE DE NEOPLASM MAMAR

Abstract


Of all the four forms of the Kaposi Sarcoma, the iatrogenic form is the least encountered one. The occurence of Kaposi Sarcoma in patients with a certified diagnosis of tuberculosis is thought to be a rare side effect of the delayed diagnosis of tuberculosis. What makes the below presented case special is the unilateral localization of Kaposi sarcoma and the breast neoplasm on the same side, the patient having been diagnosed also with active pulmonary tuberculosis.

Dintre cele patru forme ale sarcomului Kaposi, forma iatrogenă este cel mai puțin întâlnită. Apariția sarcomului Kaposi la pacienții cu tuberculoză este considerată o complicație rară a tubeculozei diagnosticate tardiv. Cazul prezentat este interesant prin localizarea unilaterală a SK și prin antecedentele de neoplasm mamar de aceeași parte, bolnava prezentând totodată tuberculoză pulmonară activă.
