Abstract

Kaposi sarcoma is a malignant, multifocal, vascular, and low-grade tumor that mostly occurs in mucocutaneous sites. Kaposi sarcoma is usually associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and involves lymphatic nodes and visceral organs. In this report, an 81-year-old man with epiglottic Kaposi sarcoma who screened negative for human immunodeficiency virus is presented.
