Abstract

Myeloid Sarcoma (MS) is a tumour mass consisting of myeloid blasts, with or without maturation, occurring at an anatomical site other than the bone marrow. It can develop de novo, as well as occurs following a hematologic disorder such as acute myeloid leukemia, myeloproliferative disorder or myelodysplastic syndrome. In this report, we present the radiologic and pathologic findings of a case diagnosed as isolated MS of femur. According to our literature research, this is the first case of isolated MS of femur in an aleukemic patient. MS is a rare neoplasm with diagnostic difficulty owing to its similarity to many other tumors and by the lack of clinical suspicion in patients without any hematological disorder. Histopathological and a detailed immunohistochemical work-up is mandatory for accurate diagnosis of MS to avoid delay in treatment.
