Abstract

1. Abstract
We describe a case of a penile Kaposi’s sarcoma in immunocompetent non HIV negative 16 years old without identifiable risk factor. He presented with penile lesions in which diagnosis was confirmed through tissue histopathology and immunohistochemistry (HHV-8). We treated the patient using combination therapy of ABV with different dosage = doxorubicin, bleomycin and vincristine doxorubicin 30 mg/m2 IV, bleomycin 15 units/m2 IV, and vincristine 1.4 mg/m2 IV, administered every 3 weeks. ABV was preceded by a single dose of BV, followed two weeks later by the ABV combination that is subsequently given every 3 weeks for 8 cycles.
