07:00 EST 7th March 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Granulocytic Sarcoma: A Rare Cause of Wrist Pain."

Septic, inflammatory, or crystal-induced arthritis are common etiologies of wrist pain without antecedent trauma associated with pain, loss of motion, swelling, redness, and warmth. In this report, we detail the case of granulocytic sarcoma of the wrist that presented as acute wrist pain, swelling, and limitation in motion. Granulocytic sarcoma is an exceedingly rare extramedullary tumor associated with acute myeloblastic leukemia. It may be found in any part of the body; however, upper extremity involvement is uncommon. To our knowledge, this is the first description of granulocytic sarcoma occurring in the wrist joint.
