Kaposi's sarcoma and central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma are the 2 most common malignancies related to HIV infection.
To investigate the association between Kaposi's sarcoma and CNS lymphoma, a population-based retrospective cohort study was conducted.
Using U.S. Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results Program data, the gender-specific age-and calendar year-adjusted standardized incidence ratios were calculated for the pre-AIDS (1973-1980) and AIDS (1981-1990) eras, as an estimate of the relative risk (RR) of developing one condition following another.
For the AIDS era in men, the RR of CNS lymphoma following Kaposi's sarcoma was 979.7 and that of Kaposi's sarcoma following CNS lymphoma was 231.1 There were no instances of the co-occurrence of these malignancies in women in either era or in men for the pre-AIDS era.
The extremely high RRs for the co-occurrence of Kaposi's sarcoma and CNS lymphoma in men during the AIDS era suggests that the association of these malignancies occurs within the same HIV-infected individuals.
