Abstract

Kaposi's sarcoma has only rarely been reported in children with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. In contrast to adult patients, in whom the disease is predominantly cutaneous, among pediatric patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Kaposi's sarcoma is primarily limited to the lymphadenopathic form. We describe two children with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who developed diffuse nodular skin lesions of Kaposi's sarcoma.
