Abstract

Abstract: Skin infiltration in leukemia occurs rarely. Leukemia cutis has a wide range of cutaneous manifestations from maculopapular to tumorous stage. Patients with Leukemia cutis usually have concomitant systemic leukemia, but occasionally skin involvement precedes the in-volvement of the bone marrow or peripheral blood. Complete remission could be achieved with chemotherapy, however, the long term prognosis is poor.
