Case 41. A misdiagnosis of erythroleukemia.


A 57-year-old woman with splenomegaly, moderate anemia and a paraspinal mass was found to have strikingly increased erythropoiesis, which was left shifted and dysplastic with many multinucleated cells. An increased percentage of CD34-positive and CD117-positive cells suggested a diagnosis of pure erythroleukemia. Further investigations were performed.
