An 82-year-old white man presented with progressive, multilocalized skin lesions of more than 1 year's duration on the lower extremities (Figure, A and B) that had spread to the trunk. Histologic findings showed features of Kaposi sarcoma (KS) (Figure, C), which was confirmed by human herpesvirus 8 detection in KS and peripheral blood via polymerase chain reaction. Systemic malignancies, sarcoidosis, hypogammaglobulinemia, and dysgammaglobulinemia were excluded.
