Abstract

We report a case of preleukemic granulocytic sarcoma of the small intestine preceding the development of acute myelomonocytic leukemia with abnormal eosinophils and inversion of chromosome 16, inv(16)(p13q22). A literature review suggests that this is a recurring cytogenetic-clinicopathologic association and carries a favorable prognosis, especially if treated aggressively with antileukemic therapy at the time of diagnosis.
