ABSTRACT
Leukemia cutis [LC] is the infiltration of neoplastic leukocytes or their precursors into the epidermis, the dermis, or the sub cutis, resulting in clinically identifiable cutaneous lesions. LC may follow, precede, or occur concomitantly with the diagnosis of systemic leukemia.
Here we present a case report of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia [CML] cutis in a 32-year-old female who was a known case of CML and presented with multiple erythematous nodules all over her body. Cytological study from the aspirates of these nodules revealed MPO [Myeloperoxidase] positive immature cells from myeloid series.
