Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a mesenchymal neoplasm associated with human herpes virus-8. It is often found in patients with primary or secondary immunodeficiency. An iatrogenic form of KS is detectable in patients who have received immunosuppressive therapy. To date, there are few reported cases of patients with KS treated with immunosuppressants for inflammatory bowel disease.
