Aleukemic leukemia cutis (LC) is an extremely rare clinical presentation. All patients eventually develop acute leukemia, mostly monocytic and myelomonocytic types. It is a diagnostic challenge, resolved by careful immunophenotyping and cytochemistry. The diagnosis indicates a poor prognosis. Here, we report a case of an 85-year-old white male with LC, who had normal peripheral blood and bone marrow histology. The fragility of our patient precluded any definite anti-leukemic therapy.
