Abstract: Pulmonary Kaposi's sarcoma is a rare condition. Its diagnosis may be tricky due to its similarities in clinical and radiological features with pulmonary opportunistic infections as well as other lung lesions. Treatment for Kaposi's sarcoma include radiotherapy, chemotherapy and/or immunotherapy whereby lung Kaposi's sarcoma respond well to chemotherapy. An immunocompetent 68-year-old man was admitted with clinical, radiological and bronchoscopic features of bronchogenic carcinoma. However, the histological result revealed Kaposi's sarcoma of the lung. The patient was treated with radiotherapy and recovered well from his symptoms. Six months later the patient remain asymptomatic with essentially a normal chest x-ray.
