A 73 year-old healthful HIV-negative man suddenly developed on left knee nodular exophytic Kaposi's sarcoma. Lesions showed a tendency to quick diffusion to the limb, and inguinal lymph node enlargement was present 2 months after the appearance of the disease. The patient was treated with local radiotherapy and systemic chemotherapy. A good response was noticed but it was followed by the appearance of new lesions.
