Follicular mucinosis as a presenting sign of acute myeloblastic leukemia.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Follicular mucinosis is often associated with mycosis fungoides and has been rarely observed to occur with other neoplastic and inflammatory conditions. We describe a 60-year-old patient with follicular mucinosis who later developed acute myelogenous leukemia. This is the first reported case of follicular mucinosis as a presenting sign of acute myeloblastic leukemia in the absence of mycosis fungoides or leukemia cutis.
