Abstract

Hematopoietic neoplasms are known to occur in the setting of HIV. Excluding Kaposi's sarcoma, the neoplasms are generally high-grade lymphoproliferative disorders. Granulocytic sarcoma, an extramedullary hematopoietic malignancy that may precede or occur during the course of acute myeloid leukemia, has rarely been described in the HIV population. We present the fourth documented case, to our knowledge, of a granulocytic sarcoma occurring in an HIV-positive individual. This has been associated with a very poor prognostic outcome.
