Organ transplant recipients have a high incidence of cancer associated with persistent viral infections, such as human herpes virus 8. This virus is associated with Kaposi’s sarcoma, and a change in the dose or type of immunosuppression regimen should be the first step in its treatment. A multidisciplinary approach with nephrologists, dermatologists and oncologists is necessary for the management of this disease. We report a clinical case with atypical presentation and discuss the treatment options.
