Classical Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is an indolent neoplasm involving mucocutaneous sites predominantly in elderly Mediterranean or Jewish persons. Whilst gastrointestinal involvement is common, it is usually asymptomatic. This case report presents a case of massive gastrointestinal haemorrhage in a patient with stable cutaneous disease and outlines options for the investigation and management of this rare complication.
