Aleukemic Leukemia Cutis in a Child Preceding T‐Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Abstract: An 8‐year‐old boy presented with a widespread cutaneous eruption featuring macules, papules, nodules, and ulcers. The histologic infiltrate showed T lymphoblasts, but there was no sign of systemic involvement, so aleukemic leukemia cutis was diagnosed. Two months later, he developed leukemia in peripheral blood and bone marrow that was characterized as T‐cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
