The classic Kaposi's disease is an uncommon endothelial malignant tumor, first described by Moricz Kaposi in 1872. It is commonly encountered in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), immunosuppression or organ transplantation. Eylid location is rare , mostly in patients with AIDS. We present a selected case with a purplish erythematous lesion in the upper eyelid in a patient who is HIV negative and immunocompetent, with an unremarkable general medical history. The lesion was surgically excised with no adjunctive treatment, and histological examination confirmed the diagnosis.
