We present an unusual case of a granulocytic sarcoma (chloroma) of the sacrum which predated the initial clinical manifestation of acute myelogenous leukemia. Although granulocytic sarcomas occur in up to 9.1% of cases of acute myelogenous leukemia they usually present concurrently with the leukemic presentation. Although granulocytic sarcomas can involve several different organ systems, bone is the most common site.
