Kaposi's sarcoma: Common moles / nevi aren't a feature of advanced HIV infection, but kaposi's sarcoma, a quasimalignant proliferation of blood vessels due to the herpes 8 virus is vary familiar. These are red-brown, flat-or-raised lesions. Now that HIV infection is manageable, we are seeing less of these, which is a good thing. If you are concerned, your physician can offer easy HIV testing.
