Case reportLiverAtypical Acute Leukemia Early After Liver Transplantation
Review articleOpen access

AbstractAcute myeloid leukemia (AML) has been rarely reported after transplantation, namely seven cases described so far. The putative mechanism of action is long-standing immunosuppression, even though no clear correlation with the type of drug has ever been demonstrated. We report the case of a 28-year-old male patient who presented with a early onset of AML after liver transplantation for hepatitis B virus-related acute liver failure. The AML was characterized by aggressive clinical features with extrahematologic sites of involvement and an atypical immunophenotype; the laboratory findings were consistent with the diagnosis of monocytic acute leukemia.
