Abstract

Kaposi disease (KD) is an angiogenetic tumor process, characterized by its various clinical aspects. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial and it was attributed to HHV-8 infection. We report an original case of disseminated KD revealed by solitary lesion of external ear in a patient treated by corticosteroids for bullous pemphigoid.
