A case of Granulocytic sarcoma (Chloroma, Myeloblastoma) presenting as an isolated subcutaneous swelling on the anterior aspect of the chest wall in a 20 year old male is described. The diagnosis was made from the examination of a FNA biopsy specimen. The patient showed no peripheral blood or bone marrow evidence of leukemia at the time of presentation. However he developed Acute Myeloid leukemia four months later.
