Kaposi Sarcoma looks like...
Oct 9, 2001

Does Kaposi Sarcoma resemble, skin that is reddish in color and appears to be skin that is thinning or thinner than the surrounding skin?

Also for anyone looking for images has an image search engine which will locate ks images.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

KS is not reddish, it's an intense dark purplish color, and I would not describe it as looking thinner than the surrounding skin. Thanks of behalf of our website visitors for a way to look for pictures.
