To evaluate the risk of another cancer among persons who initially developed Kaposi's sarcoma, the authors used data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program of the National Cancer Institute for the years 1973-1990.
In persons under 70 years of age, 4,946 cases of Kaposi's sarcoma were observed during the period 1980-1990 (6,217 person-years of follow-up).
On the basis of rates seen during the period prior to the epidemic of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), 169 cases were expected.
Therefore, cases of Kaposi's sarcoma in this group were assumed to be AIDS-related, while cases occurring in older persons or during the 1970s were assumed to be non-AIDS-related.
