Oro-facial epidemic Kaposi's sarcoma (eKS) was observed in 124 patients (123 homo-/bisexual men, average age 37.9 years, and one 35-year-old transsexual patient). Average survival time was 1 year 9 months (range: 3 months 4 years 6 months). 57.3% of the patients had died. The hard and/or soft palate, gingiva and tongue were most frequently affected, with falling frequency within these locations. Oral manifestations of eKS appear to be common; treatment modalities must be optimised.
