Definition

A myeloid sarcoma is a tumour mass consisting of myeloid blasts with or without maturation occurring at an anatomical site other than the bone marrow (BM). Infiltrates of any site of the body by myeloid blasts in leukaemic patients are not classified as myeloid sarcoma unless they present with tumour masses in which the tissue architecture is effaced.
