Özet


Abstract

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) affects middle-aged adults. When the disease involves soft tissue, it is called granulocytic sarcoma (GS). GS can be present in the gastrointestinal tract but involvement of the appendix is uncommon. Furthermore, infiltration of the appendix by leukemic cells is also a rare manifestation of leukemia relapse (1). Here, we report a 50-year-old man with AML who was presented with acute appendicitis and treated successfully by surgery.

Keywords: Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Appendisitis, Leukemic Appendisitis, Granulocytic Sarcoma

Özet

Akut myeloid lösemi orta yaş grubunu etkileyen bir lösemi alt tipidir. Hastalık yumuşak dokuyu tuttuğunda granülositik sarkom olarak adlandırılır. Granülositik sarkom gastrointestinal sistemi tutabilir ancak appendiks tutulumu nadirdir. Buna ek olarak appendiksin lösemik hücrelerle infiltrasyonu şeklinde myeloid lösemi relapsı çok daha nadir bir prezentasyondur. Biz de akut appendisit ile AML relapsı oluşan ve cerrahi ile tedavi edilen 50 yaşındaki erkek olgumuzu sunduk.
