A patient presented to the BPEI Emergency Room with a painless red eye for the past 3 months. Past medical history was limited to a recent hospitalization for a complicated pneumonia and a new diagnosis of HIV. Examination of the eye revealed an elevated, vascular, reddish-purple lesion of the bulbar conjunctiva. Excisional biopsy confirmed a diagnosis of Kaposi’s sarcoma. Patient was referred to hematology/oncology, dermatology and systemic imaging to rule out widespread disease and the need for chemotherapy.
