Myeloid sarcoma (MS) of the thyroid in a patient suffering from chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is very rare. Herein, we report a case of MS of the thyroid in a 50-year-old woman who was a diagnosed as a case of CML but discontinued treatment for the last 1 year despite satisfactory initial response to chemotherapy. She came with weakness, fever, and painful swelling of the thyroid for the last 1 month. Present hematological examination diagnosed CML in blast crisis phase. Ultrasonography revealed multiple nodules along with calcification in the right lobe of the thyroid. Guided fine needle aspiration from thyroid nodule disclosed MS of the thyroid. Our report is not only rare but also stresses the need for regular chemotherapy, discontinuity or irregularity of which calls upon such complication.
