Leukemia Cutis (LC) has many clinical morphologies that present a diagnostic challenge. This case report of a 58-year-old man experiencing a flare of psoriasis elucidates the need for clinical suspicion when a history of leukemia is present. A skin biopsy revealed histopathologic findings of psoriasis and an infiltrate of mononuclear cells consistent with LC. Upon review of the literature, 2 additional cases were reported of concurrent psoriasis and LC.
