Leukemia Cutis

Leukemia cutis (LC) is a localized or disseminated skin infiltration by leukemic cells. It is usually a sign of dissemination of systemic disease or relapse of existing leukemia.


Leukemia cutis is thought to result from a local proliferation of the leukemic cells within the skin.

Both a genetic component and an environmental component appear to be involved in many leukemias. A variety of well-characterized chromosomal translocations result in specific leukemic syndromes.

Patients with Down syndrome have an increased risk for both megakaryoblastic leukemia and pre*B-cell leukemia.
