Acute leukemia generally present with nonspecific symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, malaise, anorexia, weight loss, fever, bone pains, bruising, or bleeding that begin gradually and are the consequence of associated cytopenias. Polyserositis with predominant pericardial effusion clinically manifested as heart failure as the presenting feature of acute myeloid leukemias (AMLs) has been rarely described. In this report, we describe a case of a 21-year-old male, who presented with symptomatic serositis and leukemia cutis and was subsequently diagnosed as AML-myelomonocytic type (AML-M4).
