Abstract

AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma rarely involves bone or bone marrow. Computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis of an AIDS patient with lower back pain and bilateral limb edema revealed multiple lesions involving liver, spleen, and axial skeleton. Bone marrow examination of the involved iliac crest revealed Kaposi's sarcoma. Pathologic diagnosis is important so that appropriate treatment can be prescribed.
