Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) is divided into four types as classic KS, AIDS-associated KS, African endemic KS and iatrogenic KS. Classic KS is most common on the distal portion of the lower extremities. KS sometimes develops
on the hand, but there is currently no report of KS on the finger in Korea. Human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8) plays as a key role in development of KS and it is necessary for the development of KS, but it is not sufficient by itself.
So, other etiologic factors such as environmental and racial factors, gender and the immune state have recently been considered as being involved with the development of KS. We present here a rare case of KS that developed on
the finger of a 44-year-old male who had hepatocellular carcinoma due to hepatits B virus infection.
