Abstract

Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) is a polyclonal multifocal disease and the most common neoplasm associated with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. AIDS-related KS has a variable clinical course, ranging from minimal and localized disease to the skin to a rapidly progressing neoplasm that can involve the mucosal, lymph nodes and visceral with a significant morbidity and mortality. We describe a case of disseminated KS with mucosal and visceral involvement as primary manifestation of AIDS.
