Sažetak
We report on a 62-year-old HIV-negative male patient with Kaposi sarcoma. After 8 years of treatment of smaller localized skin lesions with surgery and local radiotherapy, the patient developed extensive lesions of the whole skin. The extent of the lesions required the administration of the total skin electron therapy (TSET). Until then, TSET had been used at our Department only for the treatment of mycosis fungoides. The dose delivered was 30 Gy higher than in a conventional radiotherapy treatment, where doses are usually between 8 and 24 Gy. Six months after the TSET therapy, the lesions completely regressed, except for two large facial lesions, which were surgically removed. Major side effects were mild erythema and hyperpigmentation of the skin. Erythema disappeared a month after the therapy.
