Classical Kaposi’s sarcoma is a rare condition, which is seen in men, especially those of Mediterranean and Jewish, between ages of 40-70 and has a good prognosis. In this case report, our aim is to emphasize the atypical presentation of the classical type of Kaposi’s sarcoma, which was developed in a 91-year-old female patient. Although nutritional factors have been associated mostly with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome-related or endemic type of Kaposi sarcoma; the low score of our patient’s mini-nutritional assessment (MNA) (17 points) suggests that nutrition status may also play a role in the development of a classical type of Kaposi sarcoma.
