Kaposi’s sarcoma is the most common HIV-associated malignancy; it is extremely associated with Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV8). It usually starts on the skin and may later disseminate to visceral organs. Pulmonary Kaposi’s sarcoma is uncommon especially in children and very rare as an obstructive mass in trachea. We are reporting a case of HIV-associated Kaposi’s Sarcoma involving the lung parenchyma and obstructing the trachea.
