kaposis sarcoma treatment
May 24, 2005

I started haart therapy 2 months ago and am doing doxil chemo for my ks. If the discoloration does not fade or disappear, is there a process in dermatology available to help diminish the color? Someone said grenz radiotherapy. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

Some patients with localized lesions are treated with laser, topical liquid nitrogen, or low dose radiation with some fading of the lesions. I don't have a single preferred recommendation. KH

How soon should I expect side effects?
Rash occurring on various combinations of medications
