This image depicts a close intraoral view of a HIV/AIDS-positive patient, who had presented with an intraoral Kaposi’s sarcoma lesion, along with an overlying candidiasis infection. This AIDS patient exhibited a CD4+ T-cell count of <200, and a high viral load. Initially, the KS lesions were flattened and red, but as they age they become raised, and darker, tending to a purple coloration.
