We saw bone marrow necrosis in a case of acute myelomonocytic leukemia. The diagnosis was made during the patient's life, and the bone marrow microcirculation was studied immediately postmortem. Histology and injection of the bone marrow arteries showed an acute microcirculation failure.
The pathogenesis and possible relationship with soluble immune complexes was studied.
