Abstract

Granulocytic sarcoma of the skin is frequently associated with haematological diseases and is rarely isolated. The disease generally develops into acute systemic myeloid leukaemia and is associated with a poor prognosis. We report an elderly patient presenting isolated granulocytic sarcoma of the skin who showed a very good response to treatment with local radiotherapy and low-dose methotrexate.
