Primary amyloidosis, pure red cell aplasia, and Kaposi's sarcoma in a single patient.

Published

Journal Article

A patient who developed primary amyloidosis, pure red cell aplasia, and Kaposi's sarcoma is described. This is the second reported coincidence of Kaposi's sarcoma and pure red cell aplasia and the first coincidence of Kaposi's sarcoma and primary amyloid, thus enlarging the spectrum of plasma cell and immunoglobulin abnormalities seen in Kaposi's sarcoma. Because immunologic abnormalities have been described in all these diseases, it is felt that some primary immune dysfunction is the underlying cause of the three diseases in this patient.
