Case Report

Cutaneous myeloid sarcoma: a localised or a systemic disease?


L Sagi, GS Khaira, D Adybeik


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.
