Myeloid sarcoma (MS) is an unusual neoplasm whose understanding is principally based on the case reports and/or theoretically dated contributions. MS represents the proliferation of myeloblasts of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) at extramedullary sites. While extramedullary involvement in AML is unusual in itself, isolated (de novo) MSs that is MSs devoid of any bone marrow involvement are exceptionally rare. The present case report study expands the gamut of our acquaintance showing that MS can occur de novo, with no apparent sign or symptom of concomitant hematological disease and may show a significant response to treatment this may be omitted here. This case reports described a middle-aged male presenting as with dysphagia with isolated MS in the stomach, a very rare site.
