Abstract

Kaposi's sarcoma is an endothelial neoplasm with a variety of clinical presentations that rarely involve only the glans penis. Although it is recognized as a radiosensitive lesion, most of the reported cases of penile Kaposi's sarcoma have been treated surgically. We describe 2 otherwise healthy men with this unusual presentation of Kaposi's sarcoma who were treated with radiation therapy. These cases and a review of the literature demonstrate the role of radiation therapy in the conservative management of classic Kaposi's sarcoma involving the penis.
