Abstract

The authors present a case of cutaneous extramedullary hematopoiesis in a 63-year-old male patient with agnogenic myeloid metaplasia. The skin lesions appeared before splenectomy as multiple papules and nodules on the trunk. Histologic examination of a lesion showed all the tree components of the hematopoietic tissue, i.e. myeloid, erythroid and megakaryocytic series. A review of the literature revealed 18 previously reported cases, with polymorphous clinical manifestations of skin involvement. The possibility of extamedullary hematopoiesis should be considered in a patient with agnogenic myeloid metaplasia who shows cutaneous eruptions.
