Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of AIDS-related Kaposi sarcoma in the eyelid. Case: A 35-year-old man had noted a tumor in the lower eyelid since 6 months before. It gradually increased in size following transconjunctival incision and curettage. Multiple foci in the lung were detected during health check-up 4 months before. He was diagnosed with AIDS at the Department of Internal Medicine of Kyushu University. He was referred to us regarding the eyelid tumor. Findings and Clinical Course: A painful, dark red mass was present in the right lower eyelid. Another red mass was present in the left bulbar conjunctiva. The tumor in eye right eyelid was resected and proved to be Kaposi sarcoma. Metastatic lesions were present in the lung and gastrointestinal tract. He was treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy (ART) and six courses of liposomal doxorubicin. Tumors in the eyes, lung, and gastrointestinal tract disappeared 6 months after end of treatment. Conclusion: This case illustrates that a tumor in the eyelid may be initial clinical manifestation of AIDS-related Kaposi sarcoma.
