To the Editor: Kaposi sarcoma (KS) was originally
described in 1872 and was first noted as an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
(AIDS)–associated neoplasm in 1981.1 The
common radiological modalities used in the diagnosis of extracutaneous KS
have been sequential gallium and thallium scintigraphy. We describe a case
of disseminated osseous KS of noncontiguous spread that was not detected by
the conventional nuclear scans and was confirmed only by bone biopsy guided
by computed tomography (CT).
