Abstract

Bone marrow necrosis is a rare clinical condition often associated with hematological malignancy. The mechanism by which malignant disease causes marrow necrosis is unknown. We present a case of a patient with newly diagnosed pancytopenia with bone marrow biopsy evidence of extensive marrow necrosis. Upon further work-up utilizing Tc bone scan directed bone marrow biopsy, a massive CD8+ T cell marrow infiltrate was discovered engulfing AML- M2 blasts. The role of Tc bone scans in the work-up of bone marrow necrosis as well as the potential mechanism of AML-M2 induced marrow necrosis in the setting of reactive CD8+ T cell infiltration is discussed.
