Abstract

Myeloid sarcoma (extramedullary myeloblastoma, granulocytic sarcoma, chloroma) is an extramedullary isolated malignant tumor of myeloblasts and immature myelocytes. It can occur anywhere in the body as a solitary tumor or can be accompanied with acute myeloid leukemia. We are presenting a case of a young male patient that presented with sings of a small bowel obstruction and a palpable tumor mass in the abdomen. After uneventful postoperative period, the immunohistochemistry analysis reported an extramedullary myeloid sarcoma since a normal bone marrow biopsy was revealed.
