          Kaposi’s Sarcoma
• Pathogenesis of HHV-8 and possible interaction with
  HIV currently being studied
• Bacillary angiomatosis should be in differential,
  especially for “unusual” KS cases
• HAART improves immune status  regression of KS
• Symptomatic pulmonary involvement: consider
  treatment with chemotherapy
