Abstract

Acute leukaemia may rarely present as diffuse papules, nodules and plaques forming leonine facies. Leukaemia cutis generally carries a poor prognosis, and responds less well to chemotherapy. We described a case of acute myelomonocytic leukaemia presenting as leonine facies as a result of extensive cutaneous infiltration. The patient did not achieve haematological remission following standard induction chemotherapy and succumbed 6 weeks after the diagnosis was made.
