Classic Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a sporadic disease that usually affects persons older than 50 years, with a distinct male predominance. Although classic KS has a protracted, indolent course, there appears to be a rare disseminated fulminant type. This report describes a case of classic KS, presenting as a very rapid enlargement and dissemination of skin lesions, without evidence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or involvement of other internal organs.
