Abstract:

Granulocytic sarcoma is an unusual extramedullary manifestation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). It is more common in the pediatric population and it may present at any time in the course of the disease. Occasionally, it may precede the clinical onset of acute myeloid leukemia. The case of a 3-year-old male child with a bilateral orbital infiltration that precipitated the diagnosis of AML is presented.

Keywords: Myeloid sarcoma. Acute myeloid leukemia.
