Fourteen patients with Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) were treated systemically with vinblastine sulfate in a low‐dose regimen and compared with 23 patients reported in the medical literature. The therapeutic results in our series were excellent in terms of regression of cutaneous lesions. Vinblastine appears to be a drug that is well suited for the management of KS in an outpatient setting. Intravenous therapy may be supplemented with intralesional or intraarterial vinblastine.
