Abstract

Pseudo-Kaposi's sarcoma is a reactive vasoproliferating disorder that resembles Kaposi's sarcoma. In most cases, it has been associated, with venous insufficiency and congenital or iatrogenic arteriovenous fistula. We report a 56-year-old female patient with pseudo-Kaposi's sarcoma, probably caused by chronic lymphedema and venous insufficiency, which developed after open reduction and internal fixation for right femoral fracture.
