Caption: Skin plaques due to Kaposi's sarcoma on the right arm and chest of a patient with AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). AIDS is a disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It causes a gradual weakening of the immune system, making otherwise harmless infections life- threatening. Kaposi's sarcoma is a type of skin cancer. When combined with AIDS it often spreads to other tissues and can be rapidly fatal. Photographed in Africa, where lack of basic medical services, partiuclarly in rural areas, allows many conditions to progress before treatment can be provided.
