To the Editor: After reading the report by Relman et al. on the identification of the agent of bacillary angiomatosis (Dec. 6 issue), I wondered whether Kaposi's sarcoma, another disorder of the immunosuppressed, characterized by a “proliferation of small blood vessels in the skin and visceral organs,” had ever been subjected to a similar search for occult pathogens. Might it also originate from an infectious agent?.
