BACKGROUND Herpesvirus-like DNA sequences have recently been found in lesions from patients with Kaposi's sarcoma and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It is not known whether these sequences are also present in classic Kaposi's sarcoma or in the Kaposi's sarcoma that occurs in homosexual men who are seronegative for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). METHODS We analyzed DNA in tissue samples from patients with AIDS-associated Kaposi's sarcoma, patients with classic Kaposi's… Expand
