PURPOSE: Kaposi's sarcoma is the most common type of cancer among the patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. The incidence diminished substantially with the antiretroviral therapy. We study a case and make a bibliographical review of this entity. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A 49 year old male patient with HIV infection and Kaposi's sarcoma with visceral involvement who was treated with liposomal doxorubicin is presented. CONCLUSION: When the disease is symptomatic, rapidly progressive or shows visceral involvement, a systemic therapy with liposomal anthracycline is advisable.
