Abstract
Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is a multicentric low-grade vascular malignancy. In North America, it is usually seen in AIDS and solid organ transplant populations. Classic KS is a subtype that traditionally occurs in elderly HIV-negative males of Mediterranean, Eastern European, and Jewish descent. Patients with classic KS characteristically present with skin lesions in the distal extremities. Involvement of the viscera is uncommon in classic KS, but may occur in the late stages of the disease. We report the first case of classic KS presenting in the gastrointestinal tract of an elderly HIV-negative Inuit male from Northern Quebec, Canada.
