Human herpes virus (HHV)-8 is associated with causation of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS). An HIV-positive male with multiple nodules on the body was clinically and histopathologically diagnosed as a case of KS; however, immunohistochemistry was negative for HHV-8. This peculiar scenario of HHV-8-negative tumor with typical clinical and histopathologic findings was labeled as “Atypical spindled endothelial proliferation suspicious of Kaposi sarcoma”, hitherto unreported novel entity.
