Aleukemic leukemia cutis has always been a dermatological curiosity. It is a rare condition characterized by the infiltration of skin by leukemic cells before their appearance in the peripheral blood or bone marrow. A 20 year old man had presented with nodular swelling on the scalp of 6 months duration along with cervical lymphadenopathy. Biopsy and immunohistochemistry revealed myeloid sarcoma. The initial presentation was aleukemic and repeated peripheral blood counts and marrow examinations were normal. However, the outcome was fatal within 3 months of diagnosis of cutaneous lesions.
