Abstract

Case report: We report a case of conjunctival Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) in a nonimmunocompromised patient. The resected tumour recurred locally. No additional lesion was seen 20 months after the second surgery. Comments: Before onset of AIDS, few reports described primary conjunctival KS, although it has been described in other immunocompromised disease stages, i.e. systemic KS.
