A Case of Granulocytic Sarcoma of the Lung in Acute Myeloid Leukemia by Yashu Feng, Ling Zhang, Na Cheng, Wenxing Lai, Yuxin Chen, Jiajun Liu

Background: Granulocytic sarcoma in the lung is a rare presentation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Here, we describe a rare case of granulocytic sarcoma of the lung in a 56-year-old male patient with AML.
Methods: Hematologic investigation, bone marrow aspirate, cytogenetic analysis, chest computed tomography (CT), and pulmonary biopsy were performed.
Results: The patient achieved complete remission (CR) after induction therapy, but the patient refused further treatment and was lost to follow-up.
Conclusions: Pulmonary biopsy and bone marrow aspirate are important to confirm a correct diagnosis. Pulmo-nary granulocytic sarcoma as a prognostic factor needs further studies.
