A Rare Case Report of Acute T-cell Lymphoblastic Leukaemia Presenting with Cutaneous Involvement in a Child
T-cell lymphoblastic leukaemia with primary cutaneous involvement is uncommon in children. We describe a 6-year-old girl who was hospitalised to our hospital with several skin lesions. She appeared pale and frail. There was lymphadenopathy all over the body. A complete blood test revealed a white blood cell count of 216,000/mm3. A peripheral blood smear revealed 80% lymphoblasts. Flowcytometry demonstrated that 96 percent of the blastic cells in the bone marrow had the immunophenotype and morphological features of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (T-ALL). The treatment procedure for ALL BFM -95 remission induction was initiated. After two months of cytotoxic therapy, the skin lesion remained the same. After four months of treatment, her symptoms became more severe, and she died.
