"The osteopathic paradigm is that , “Structure governs function”! However, I believe that emotions impact on function therefore they must also interfere with structure."

Kaposis Sarcoma

Information Regarding Kaposis Sarcoma

AIDS-related lymphoma is a disease in which malignant cancer cells form in the lymph system of patients who have acquired immunodeficiency syndrome AIDS. AIDS is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus HIV, which attacks and weakens the bodys immune system. The immune system is then unable to fight infection and diseases that invade the body.
People with HIV disease have an increased risk of developing infections, lymphoma, and other types of cancer. A person with HIV disease who develops certain types of infections or cancer is then diagnosed with AIDS.

Sometimes, people are diagnosed with AIDS and AIDS-related lymphoma at the same time. 

Lymphomas are cancers that affect the white blood cells of the lymph system, part of the bodys immune system. The lymph system is made up of the following:
  • Lymph: Colorless, watery fluid that travels through the lymph system and carries white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes protect the body against infections and the growth of tumors.
  • Lymph vessels: A network of thin tubes that collect lymph from different parts of the body and return it to the bloodstream. 
  • Lymph nodes: Small, bean-shaped structures that filter substances in lymph and help fight infection and disease. Lymph nodes are located along the network of lymph vessels found throughout the body. Clusters of lymph nodes are found in the underarm, pelvis, neck, abdomen, and groin. 
  • Spleen: An organ that produces lymphocytes, filters the blood, stores blood cells, and destroys old blood cells. It is located on the left side of the abdomen near the stomach. 
  • Thymus: An organ in which lymphocytes grow and multiply. The thymus is in the chest behind the breastbone. Tonsils: Two small masses of lymph tissue at the back of the throat. The tonsils produce lymphocytes. 
  • Bone marrow: The soft, spongy tissue in the center of large bones. Bone marrow produces white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.

There are many different types of lymphoma. Lymphomas are divided into two general types:
Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Both Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma may occur in AIDS patients, but non-Hodgkins lymphoma is more common. When a person with AIDS has non-Hodgkins lymphoma, it is called an AIDS-related lymphoma. Non-Hodgkins lymphomas are grouped by the way their cells look under a microscope. They may be indolent slow-growing or aggressive fast-growing. AIDS-related lymphoma is usually aggressive. 

There are three main types of AIDS-related lymphoma: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. B-cell immunoblastic lymphoma. Small non-cleaved cell lymphoma.

Possible signs of AIDS-related lymphoma include weight loss, fever, and night sweats.These and other symptoms may be caused by AIDS-related lymphoma. Other conditions may cause the same symptoms.
A doctor should be consulted if any of the following problems occur:
  • Weight loss or fever for no known reason.
  • Night sweats.
  • Painless, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, chest, underarm, or groin. 
  • A feeling of fullness below the ribs. 
Tests that examine the body and lymph system are used to help detect find and diagnose AIDS-related lymphoma.The following tests and procedures may be used:
  • Physical exam and history: An exam of the body to check general signs of health, including checking for signs of disease, such as lumps or anything else that seems unusual. 
  • A history of the patients health habits and past illnesses and treatments will also be taken.
  • Complete blood count CBC: A procedure in which a sample of blood is drawn and checked for the following:The number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
  • The amount of hemoglobin the protein that carries oxygen in the red blood cells.
  • The portion of the sample made up of red blood cells.
  • Lymph node biopsy: The removal of all or part of a lymph node. A pathologist views the tissue under a microscope to look for cancer cells. 
One of the following types of biopsies may be done:
  • Excisional biopsy: The removal of an entire lymph node. 
  • Incisional biopsy or core biopsy: The removal of part of a lymph node. Needle biopsy or fine-needle aspiration: The removal of a sample of tissue from a lymph node with a needle.
  • Bone marrow biopsy: The removal of a small piece of bone and bone marrow by inserting a needle into the hipbone or breastbone. A pathologist views both the bone and bone marrow samples under a microscope to look for signs of cancer. 
  • HIV test: A test to measure the level of HIV antibodies in a sample of blood. Antibodies are made by the body when it is invaded by a foreign substance. A high level of HIV antibodies may mean the body has been infected with HIV.
  • Epstein-Barr virus EBV test: A test to measure the level of EBV antibodies in a sample of blood, tissue, or cerebrospinal fluid CSF. Antibodies are made by the body when it is invaded by a foreign substance. A high level of EBV antibodies may mean the body has been infected with EBV.
  • Chest x-ray: An x-ray of the organs and bones inside the chest. An x-ray is a type of energy beam that can go through the body and onto film, making a picture of areas inside the body.
Certain factors affect prognosis chance of recovery and treatment options.The prognosis chance of recovery and treatment options depend on the following:
  • The stage of the cancer.
  • The number of CD4 lymphocytes a type of white blood cell in the blood.
  • Whether the patient has ever had AIDS-related infections.
  • The patients ability to carry out regular daily activities.
