Acute Myeloid Leukemia accounts about 80% of adult acute leukemias, that presents as de novo or following MDS. It shows typical clinical and cytological pattern of presentation, Hepatosplenomegaly presents in one third of the cases and Lymphadenopathy, extramedullary involvement are rarely seen.
We tried to report an uncommon occurrence of AML in a 21 y/o female who admitted in Rheumatology service as a spondylitis. She experienced low back pain , anorexia , sever weight loss , fever, tenderness of lumbar spines and head of left humorous accumpanied with limited left shoulder girdle movements, and hematocytologic and pathologic challenges were not clear enough for specific diagnosis.
The clinical and paraclinical findings of the case looked uncommon for de novo leukemia or MDS-AML. Even thought there were so many questions left without clear answer but the diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia confirmed histopathologically.
