anatomopathological and immunohistochemical analyses confirmed the diagnosis of Kaposi's sarcoma... Kaposi's sarcoma is about 300 times more common in AIDS patients than in those with other Computed tomography detects subepithelial polypoid lesions or irregular thickening of may be observed in the porta hepatis, mesenterium and retroperitoneum in up 80% of cases... Kaposi's sarcoma with visceral involvement is frequently associated with poor prognosis... The treatment includes antiretroviral therapy, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy... The authors conclude that Kaposi's sarcoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of hypervascular submucosal lesions, particularly in AIDS patients.

A: Radiographic image of esophagus, stomach and duodenum shows polypoidfilling defect. B,C: Abdominal CT arterial phase shows subepithelialhypervascular polypoid lesions. D: High digestive endoscopy shows thecorresponding reddish polypoid lesion.

f01: A: Radiographic image of esophagus, stomach and duodenum shows polypoidfilling defect. B,C: Abdominal CT arterial phase shows subepithelialhypervascular polypoid lesions. D: High digestive endoscopy shows thecorresponding reddish polypoid lesion.

Mentions: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) serology was positive. Double contrast radiologicalstudy of the stomach (Figure 1A) demonstratedpolypoid lesions. At abdominal computed tomography (Figures1B and 1C), solid, polypoid nodular masseswere observed on the gastric submucosa with endoluminal component and earlycontrast-enhancement. High digestive endoscopy (Figure1D) demonstrated erythematous lesions, some of them being violaceous, polypoidand flat, with a normal gastric submucosa. On that occasion, biopsy of the skin lesions andof the lesions in the stomach revealed atypical vascular lesion, and theanatomopathological and immunohistochemical analyses confirmed the diagnosis of Kaposi'ssarcoma.
