Sažetak
Kaposi’s sarcoma is a neoplasm of endothelial cells. That vascular tumor is usually limited to the skin, but it may involve mucous membranes, visceral organs, and lymph nodes. Serological evidence has shown that human herpesvirus 8 infection is required for the development of Kaposi’s sarcoma. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is the most common leukemia all over the world. Increased skin cancer risk has been reported for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The relation between these two pathologies has not yet been clarified. We report a case of Kaposi’s sarcoma along with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in a patient who did not receive therapy for chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
