Granulocytic sarcoma presented in lymph nodes in 10 cases, whereas in 20 cases it presented in extranodal sites. Common sites : skin, gum, lymph nodes , sub-periosteal bone structures (skull, para-nasal sinuses, sternum, ribs, vertebrae, pelvis, etc), but has been described in a variety of other organs. It forms a solid malignant tumor consisting of myelocytes or granulocytes and is typically located in bone while occurrence in other parts of the body is rare. Occurrence of GS in the oral cavity is extremely uncommon. The patient underwent … Extramedullary haemopoietic tumourscomplicating polycyth-aemiavera. With extensive morphological and immunohistochemical analyses, the MS were classified into five types: a) immature granulocytic sarcoma (IGS); b) differentiated granulocytic sarcoma (DGC); c) monoblastic sarcoma (MBLS); d) monocytic sarcoma (MS), and myelomonocytic sarcoma (MMS) (Table 2). It is more commonly seen is in children, with ~60% occurring in individuals less than 15 years of age. Less common terms include:[2] myeloblastoma, chloromyeloma, chloromyelosarcoma, granulocytic leukosarcoma, and myelosarcoma.

An unusual case of granulocytic sarcoma with a large retro-orbital tumor mass is described. Granulocytic sarcoma also called myeloid sarcoma is an extramedullary tumor of immature granulocytic cells. A myeloid sarcoma (chloroma, granulocytic sarcoma,: 744 extramedullary myeloid tumor), is a solid tumor composed of immature white blood cells called myeloblasts. It is not a sarcoma . (Oct 2011). The tumor rarely precedes leukemia without bone marrow involvement and is called primary GS. It is observed during the course of myeloproliferative disorders especially in chronic myeloid leukemia … Myeloid Sarcoma. 10.1309/WWW7-DG6X-HC16-D7J2. affected by granulocytic sarcomas are almost always aleuke-mic; however, progression to a leukemic may occur.20 The current report describes gross findings, cytology, histopathol - ogy, histochemistry, and immunohistochemistry of a multi-centric eosinophilic granulocytic sarcoma … Am J Clin Pathol 2000;114:807-811. Dissection of collagen by strings of neoplastic cells is a common feature. Chang CC, Eshoa C, Kampalath B, Shidham VB, Perkins S: Immunophenotypic profile of myeloid cells in granulocytic sarcoma by immunohistochemistry. Although primary GS can occur in any body part, the involvement of the oral cavity is uncommon.

Myeloid sarcoma (chloroma, granulocytic sarcoma, or extramedullary myeloid tumour) is an extramedullary mass forming neoplasm composed of myeloid precursor cells. dc.contributor.author: Banik, S: dc.contributor.author: Grech, A B: dc.contributor.author: Eyden, Brian P: dc.date.accessioned: 2010-09-08T14:44:03Z: dc.date.available Granulocytic sarcoma (GS) or what are called chloroma, myeloblastoma and myeloid sarcoma isan uncommon extramedullary solid tumor of immature myeloid cells. Extramedullary tumor mass of neoplastic immature myeloid (granulocytic or monocytic) cells. 1C-C Chang et al. Granulocytic sarcomas usually occurred in skin, soft tissue, lymph nodes, and bones Granulocytic sarcoma of the gastrointestinal tract most frequently involves the small intestine and most often presents with abdominal pain and obstruction. Myeloid sarcoma may develop during the course of a hematologic disorder but is seen to precede the disorder in 35% of cases. Myeloid sarcoma (MS) is a neoplasm of immature granulocytes, monocytes, or both involving any extramedullary site. Numerous other terms refer to this including extramedullary leukemia , [1] myeloid sarcoma and chloroma . Immunophenotypic profile of myeloid cells in granulocytic sarcoma by immunohistochemistry. Meanwhile, the onset of this kind of disease is not clear. It is not a sarcoma. See also descriptions in various chapters. It is usually associated with myeloproliferative disorders but very rarely may precede the onset of leukemia.
