Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Myeloid sarcomas are rare extramedullary tumors composed of immature myeloid cells. Most cases are seen in childhood acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). They can develop at many sites, but cardiac involvement is a rare finding. We report the case of a 24-year-old woman who, after being in remission from AML for 10 years, developed an isolated cardiac myeloid sarcoma.
