Synopsis

Patients with leukemia may present with cutaneous lesions, or cutaneous lesions may represent recurrence or progression of previously diagnosed leukemia. Leukemia cutis occurs when leukemic cells migrate to and proliferate in the skin. Lesions are unusual in lymphoblastic leukemia, more common in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), and slightly more common in myeloblastic or monocytic leukemia. While adult T-cell leukemia / lymphoma is a rare form of leukemia, leukemia cutis is a frequent presentation of this disease.
