Abstract

Jaundice as a presenting feature of pediatric acute myeloid leukemia is rare. We report two cases of AML who presented with obstructive jaundice, one with a malignant stricture at the common bile duct and other with a granulocytic sarcoma obstructing the bile duct. The prognosis is poor in these patients.
