Caption: Photograph of the interior of the mouth of a person suffering from AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), showing purple lesions caused by Kaposi's sarcoma affecting the hard palate. Kaposi's sarcoma was hitherto usually only seen in elderly persons of Jewish or Mediterranean stock, but is one of the two most common opportunistic diseases associated with AIDS. Its spread, however, is an uncommon cause of death: patients are more likely to succumb to Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, the other most rampant opportunistic infection in AIDS.
