The frequency and distribution of herpesvirus-like DNA sequences (KSHV) were investigated by PCR in the pathologic skin lesions of a series of 22 HIV-negative elderly patients with classic Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) from Italy, one of the few regions of the world where classic KS is prevalent. Viral sequences were clearly identifiable in 15 cases, in particular in 2 of 5 patch, in 3 of 6 plaque and in 10 of 11 nodular lesions. Our findings confirm the association of these herpesvirus-like DNA… CONTINUE READING
