This report presents two cases of systemic Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) in HIV-positive women from Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. KS is caused by Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV8) and is a common cancer among HIV-infected individuals in Africa. The equatorial form of KS is aggressive and affects individuals of all ages and is commonly found in Central and South Africa, including Gabon. Both patients had multifocal involvement and several localizations and were treated at the Omar Bongo Ondimba Military Hospital in Libreville, Gabon. The coexistence of HIV and HHV8 has contributed to the high prevalence of this disease in both endemic and epidemic areas.
