Abstract

Myeloid sarcoma, also commonly termed granulocytic sarcoma or chloroma, is a rare condition involving infiltration of immature myeloid cells in an extramedullary site. Myeloid sarcoma is often related to leukaemia; however, the condition can also occur in association with various myeloproliferative disorders. Although myeloid sarcoma can occur in any body part, involvement of the neoplastic condition in the oral cavity is infrequent with only 37 cases reported in the literature. We will describe two cases of oral myeloid sarcoma observed at The Alfred Hospital's Dental Unit and discuss their presenting features, diagnosis and subsequent management.
