Kaposi’s sarcoma is a frequently seen AIDS-related malignant neoplasm in the head and neck region, especially in the oral cavity, but is rarely described in the HIV-negative and immunocompetent individual. We present the iatrogenic Kaposi’s sarcoma affecting soft palate which developed in a 53-year-old male and discuss their histological features and differential diagnosis.
