Case Report

Cutaneous myeloid sarcoma: a localised or a systemic disease?

皮膚髓樣肉瘤:局部或全身性疾病?

Abstract

Chloroma, also known as myeloid sarcoma, is an extramedullary collection of immature myeloid cells. We describe a patient with myeloid sarcoma preceding the appearance of acute myeloid leukaemia who was treated with radiation therapy with temporary effect. The case emphasises the importance of a systemic treatment for this cutaneous disease.

也稱為骨髓性肉瘤的綠瘤,是未成熟的骨髓細胞在骨髓以外集結。我們描述了一名患者在其急性骨髓性白血病之前先發現患有骨髓性肉瘤,該患者接受了放射治療並得到暫時舒緩。此病例突顯了對這種皮膚病進行全身治療的重要性。
