Abstract

The occurrence of primary Kaposi's sarcoma in a lymph node affected by Hodgkin's disease is reported. The case concerns a 43-year-old woman with a recurrence of Hodgkin's disease 13 years after its initial diagnosis. In one of four excised supraclavicular nodes a Kaposi's sarcoma was unexpectedly found. The present observation stresses once more that the two diseases are closely related and possibly share the same pathogenesis.
