Abstract

In the cases presented in this report, Kaposi's sarcoma developed in the gingiva of two patients with cyclosporine-induced gingival hyperplasia. The tumor was clinically inapparent, and was diagnosed unexpectedly following biopsy of the hypertrophied gingiva. This unusual presentation has not been reported previously.
