Abstract

Granulocytic sarcoma (chloroma) is a rare solid tumor of myelogenous stem cells, usually appearing in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia and less commonly in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia or myeloproliferative disorders. We present a spinal epidural granulocytic sarcoma causing thoracic spinal cord compression in a patient with chronic anemia secondary to myelofibrosis.
