Caption: Photograph of the foot of the foot of a person suffering from AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) showing purple skin lesions due to Kaposi's sarcoma, a hitherto unusual type of skin cancer which arises as a secondary opportunistic disease in persons afflicted with the AIDS virus. The AIDS virus (designated HIV - Human Immunodeficiency Virus) disables its host's immune system by destroying T4 lymphocytes, which are key cells in the body's response to invading organisms. Persons with a depleted immune response succumb to opportunistic diseases, notably the disfiguring Kaposi's sarcoma and pneumonia.
