Abstract

The first known instance of granulocytic sarcoma of the ovary as the presenting manifestation of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia in infancy is reported. The clinical and laboratory findings for a 3‐month‐old infant who had anemia and a lower abdominal mass subsequently found to represent bilateral ovarian granulocytic sarcomas are discussed. Results of light and electron microscopic examination of bone marrow biopsy specimen were consistent with a diagnosis of acute myelomonocytic leukemia. Hematopoietic (and lymphoproliferative) disorders must be included in the differential diagnosis of ovarian masses in children.
