Compared with mature monocyte in circulation, immature precursors such as monoblasts and promonocytes, which could not be observed in the peripheral blood of healthy individuals, are larger and exhibit lower granularity [54, 55], which seemed in line with the features of A Mo in our study.
LC can be defined as myeloid sarcoma or granulocytic sarcoma, in which the infiltrate is characterized by neoplastic granulocytic precursors; otherwise, when the infiltrate is composed of neoplastic monocytic precursors (monoblasts and promonocytes), LC can be labeled monoblastic sarcoma (1).
