Caption

Kaposi's sarcoma. Ulcerated tumour caused by Kaposi's sarcoma, a type of skin cancer, on the upper back of a patient with AIDS. AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) 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. In AIDS it often spreads to other tissues and can be rapidly fatal. This image was taken in Africa, where lack of access to medicine and information makes AIDS a major public health concern.
