Kaposi's sarcoma in transfusion-associated acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is rare; to our knowledge, only four previous cases have been reported. We report a unique case of transfusion-associated acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in a 74-year-old woman. At autopsy, both lungs were extensively affected by Kaposi's sarcoma, Pneumocystis carinii, and cytomegalovirus infection. These three processes led to respiratory failure and accounted for her death.
