Myeloid sarcoma is an extramedullary tumor of immature granulocytic cells. It is usually accompanied by acute myeloid leukemia, although in some rare cases, it may present in nonleukemic patients. It is a rare entity characterized by the occurrence of one or more tumor myeloid masses occurring at an extramedullary site. It may occur at any site, leading to very varied clinical presentations. However, the most common locations are soft tissues, bone, peritoneum, and lymph nodes. The aim of this review is to summarize about pathogenesis, diagnostic test, prognosis, and treatment of myeloid sarcoma.
