Özet

Natural killer cell leukaemia is generally accompanied by extramedullary involvement. CD4+ natural killer cell leukaemia frequently manifests with cutaneous involvement. The disease pursues a very aggressive course with no long-term survivors reported. We present a patient with CD4+ natural killer cell leukaemia with skin, bone marrow and peripheral blood involvement who is still on remission at the end of 2 years.
