This image depicts a close intraoral view of a HIV/AIDS-positive patient, who had presented an advanced Kaposi’s sarcoma lesion of the hard and soft palate, secondary to his AIDS infection. KS is different from most other forms of cancer, in that it can develop at a number of different sites simultaneously rather than in a single site. The digestive system, which includes the oral cavity, is a usual site of development.
