The possibility that an agent in addition to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 may be involved in the etiology of Kaposi's sarcoma in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients was investigated between 1984 and 1992 in this nested case-control analysis from the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) of homosexual and bisexual men.
A total of 316 cases of Kaposi's sarcoma were identified and compared with 510 participants with AIDS and no evidence of cancer.
More of the Kaposi's sarcoma cases were from Los Angeles and used a higher number of recreational drugs.
The Kaposi's sarcoma cases were also more active sexually.
There was a dose-response relation between Kaposi's sarcoma and the number of sexual partners, with an odds ratio of 2 between the most and least sexually active subgroups.
