Abstract :

Granulocytic sarcoma is a rare condition with a wide list of differential diagnosis, and debatable guidelines of treatment in different cancer centers; most of literature recommended systemic chemotherapy with or without radiation therapy and minor role surgery. Diagnostic methods like CT, MRI and PET CT can facilitate follow up of response to treatment more than diagnosis, which depend mainly on pathological picture, IHC and bone marrow examination. This is a report for a rare case of myeloid sarcoma who was presented by hard palatine fistula who was successfully treated with chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy.
