Abstract

A 75-year-old man with known Kaposi's sarcoma of three-years' duration developed chronic hemorrhagic thickening of the conjunctiva. Biopsy demonstrated histopathologically that the conjunctiva thickening represented sarcoma involvement. Although surgically untenable, the conjunctival lesion responds satisfactorily to radiotherapy.
