Abstract: Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is an angiolymphatic neoplasm with multifactorial etiology. Clinically, KS has been divided into 4 distinct types and 3 well-defined histologic stages. Rare reports in the literature have characterized additional unique histopathologic variants. The authors report a case of KS, confirmed with human herpesvirus type 8 and D2-40 staining, which resembled a cavernous hemangioma on histopathology.
