Complete endobronchial occlusion by Kaposi's sarcoma in the absence of cutaneous involvement.


:Bronchopulmonary Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) occurs in 20 percent of AIDS patients with cutaneous involvement; however, complete endobronchial occlusion is uncommon. Moreover, bronchopulmonary KS is infrequent in the absence of cutaneous manifestations. We report a case of documented complete endobronchial obstruction by KS without cutaneous involvement.
