INTRODUCTION: Disseminated Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a common complication of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and usually starts as mucocutaneous lesions. Lung involvement in absence of mucocutaneous lesions is rare and is difficult to diagnose. So far, only few cases of pulmonary KS have been diagnosed by biopsy of visible endobronchial lesions. To our knowledge, this is the second reported case of pulmonary KS diagnosed with blind transbronchial lung biopsy in absence of endobronchial lesions.
