At our center one hundred eighteen patients have received liver transplants between July 1, 1991 and December 10, 1997. We describe the only one of them to our knowledge who developed Kaposi's sarcoma. It was disseminated, involving the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, multiple lymph nodes and peripancreatic soft tissues. She had no cutaneous Kaposi's sarcoma. Her massive gut involvement was not apparent clinically, even by colonoscopic examination with multiple biopsy specimens. She was diagnosed at postmortem examination.
