We report a nonmyeloablative allogeneic bone marrow transplant (allo-BMT) from an HLA-matched unrelated donor in a case of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), M2 with t(8;21)(q22;q22) and the presence of orbital granulocytic sarcoma (GS), who had residual tumor after conventional chemotherapy. The course of BMT was well tolerated, with no major procedure-related toxicity. The residual orbital GS regressed completely 4 months after BMT. She is currently 19 months post BMT, disease-free. To our knowledge, this is the first reported pediatric patient with AML, GS and t(8;21)(q22;q22) who received a nonmyeloablative allo-BMT.
