Abstract

It is uncommon for acute myelogenous leukemia to present a symptom referrable to a tumor mass. A rare case of spinal epidural granulocytic sarcoma preceding the diagnosis of acute myelogenous leukemia is described. Also, reports of acute myelogenous leukemia associated with facial palsy have been extremely rare. We report a patient who had facial nerve paralysis and polyradiculomyelopathy due to granulocytic sarcoma as the presenting symptoms of acute myeloid leukemia.
