We report the case of a patient with myelodysplasia with excess blasts (MDS-EB) whose disease progressed into secondary acute myeloid leukemia (sAML), which was refractory to liposomal daunorubicin/cytarabine. His bone marrow trephine sections demonstrated unusual erythroblast localisation within the sinusoids, in addition to marked dysplasia. The role of these erythroblastic islands in acute myeloid leukemia is not well characterised.
