Leukemia may be accompanied by two types of skin lesion. One is nonspecific lesion, called leukemids and the other is leukemia cutis, which is generally regarded as being a specific sign of dissemination of aggressive systemic leukemia to the skin. It is known to be associated with poor prognosis. Although some cases of leukemia cutis have been reported in Korea, however, there has been reported few cases of leukemia cutis which occurred in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Recently we have experienced a case of leukemia cutis associated with CLL, so report this case with review of literatures.
