This HIV-positive patient presented with an intraoral Kaposiís sarcoma lesion with an overlying candidiasis infection. This AIDS patient exhibited a CD4+ T-cell count <200, and a high viral load. Initially, the KS lesions are flattened and red, but as they age they become raised, and darker, tending to a purple coloration.
