The patient suffered from itchy penile papules around coronal region. The lab tests had revealed a negative serology of HIV but tissue PCR was positive for Human Herpesvirus-8 (HHV8). Histological findings were compatible with Kaposi sarcoma. Primary Kaposi sarcoma of penis is rare but could occur in HIV negative patients.
