This type of cancer is very rare in normal conditions, and the majority of cases only appear in patients with HIV and others with a severely compromised immune system. Kaposi sarcoma is caused by an infection by human herpesvirus 8 and may appear not only in the skin but also in the mucosa of the mouth, the digestive tract, and the lungs.
