Özet

Kaposi' sarcoma (KS) is a low-grade vascular neoplasm and classic KS, a subtype of KS, is extremely rare in children. Childhood pulmonary involvement in classic KS has not been reported in the literature. We describe an HIV-seronegative pediatric case with a fulminant course of classic KS with pulmonary involvement mimicking endobronchial tuberculosis. Pediatr Pulmonol. 2013; 48:310312.
