Follicular mucinosis is often associated with mycosis fungoides and has been rarely observed to occur with other neoplastic and inflammatory conditions. We describe a 60-year-old patient with follicular mucinosis who later developed acute myelogenous leukemia. This is the first reported case of follicular mucinosis as a presenting sign of acute myeloblastic leukemia in the absence of mycosis fungoides or leukemia cutis. (J Am Acad Dermatol 1998;39:803-5.)
