Abstract

A 60-year-old male was admitted with leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, splenic infarcts and a normal peripheral smear. Within few hours he rapidly deteriorated with fatal multi-organ failure. Autopsy revealed massive infiltration of leukemic cells in several organs. Acute myelogenous leukemia should be considered in a patient presenting with unexplained multiorgan failure.
