Myeloid sarcoma (MS) is a rare tumor mass derived from the extramedullary proliferation of blasts of one or more of myeloid lineages. It usually occurs at an anatomical site other than the bone marrow (BM). Among the anatomical site which may be involved, female genital tract is a rare localization. When MS follows a previous history of myeloid pathology it is usually associated to a poor prognosis. To date this disease was managed with exploratory laparotomy or with surgical debulking. The authors report a case of laparoscopic diagnosis of a pelvic myeloid sarcoma in a patient previously affected by acute myeloid leukemia, evidencing the importance of minimally invasive diagnosis and subsequent multidisciplinary management.
