Kaposi's sarcoma is an uncommon, vascular neoplasm associated with Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV-8). An unusual case of PT-KS, presenting with pain from bilateral macular lesions on the palate, is discussed. As far as the authors are aware, this is the only reported case of a macular post-transplant Kaposi's sarcoma initially presenting with pain. The diagnosis, clinical presentation and histology are discussed, and an update on the oral presentation and management of post-transplant Kaposi's sarcoma is provided.
