Granulocytic sarcoma (GS) or chloroma, rare extramedullary manifestation of acute myeloid leukemia and not infrequently, can be presenting clinical feature. Multiple studies have demonstrated the clinical utility of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in early detection and follow-up assessment of GS after chemotherapy. Commonly involved areas include bones, lymph nodes, breasts, and skin and not uncommonly, the disease can be multifocal. We present a rare case of ocular GS, where FDG-PET/CT in addition to the identifying the ocular mass, revealed multiple clinically occult extramedullary lesions.
