Kaposi's sarcoma is malignant lesion usually caused by infection with human herpesvirus 8 in immunocompromised patients. Although many cases of this disease have been described in the literature, only a few cases have been related to Koebner's phenomenon following trauma. In our case, 50-year-old male visited hospital with skin lesion of his right thumb pricked by metal drill bit. A diagnosis of iatrogenic Kaposi's sarcoma was made. One year after surgical removal and radiation therapy the tumor was recurred with small nodules. Then medication of pentoxyphylline was started after excision biopsy. The lesions are in stable disease with decreased size. The authors present an unusual case of trauma-induced Kaposi's sarcoma of skin in nonimmunocompromised patient.
