Increasing evidence supports an association of Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) with immunodeficiency and neoplasia, and the management and outcome of these patients requires study. This report describes a 72-year-old man with newly diagnosed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who developed MCC of his right upper extremity and died of bone marrow metastases at 8 months. In the five previously reported cases of MCC after CLL, a shorter time interval between the diagnosis of CLL and the onset of MCC was associated with a better prognosis. In contrast, in this case the near simultaneous onset of CLL and MCC was followed by a rapid, lethal outcome.
