Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is currently regarded as a low-grade vascular malignancy. KS is a multicentric and multisystem disease that involves the skin and less commonly visceral organs, such as the gastrointestinal system including colonic involvement. KS with colonic involvement in HIV-negative patients is a rare clinical manifestation. In this regard, we report an immunocompetent, HIV-negative elderly female patient with classic KS presenting with colonic involvement.
