Abstract

Summary: The radiographic abnormalities of primary Kaposi's sarcoma of the lung in a patient with a renal transplant are reported. The findings are similar to other malignancies and infections that are well recognized in the renal transplant population. In the appropriate clinical setting, the radiologist should consider the diagnosis of Kaposi's sarcoma even in the absence of cutaneous lesions as reducing immunosuppression can be curative therapy.
