Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An HIV-seropositive patient presented with multifocal lesions of both hairy leukoplakia and Kaposi's sarcoma, hairy leukoplakia being present in the epithelium covering the Kaposi's sarcoma lesions. The findings suggest that hairy leukoplakia in immunocompromised patients is both more common and more widely distributed than is generally recognised.
