Abstract

Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is an angioproliferative disorder. While KS of the head and neck is common in HIV-positives, it’s rare in HIV-negatives. Our case and the past 24 reported cases of ear KS reviewed here, highlight the importance of considering KS in the differential diagnosis of ear lesions in HIV-negatives.
