We retrospectively studied the outcomes of 80 Epidemic and African-Endemic Kaposi's Sarcoma (EKS and AKS) patients treated with radiotherapy doses of 8.0 Gy. The objective response for EKS at one month was 74 and 58% for AKS while 5-year survival for EKS was 27 and 46% for AKS. © 2005 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
