An evaluation of humoral and cellular immune mechanisms was performed on patients with Kaposi's sarcoma in Uganda. Antibody responses and immunoglobulin levels were normal in all patients studied. Nevertheless, a striking impairment in the delayed hypersensitivity response to dinitrochlorobenzene was noted in patients with the “malignant” type of tumour.
