Extramedullary leukaemic involvement is not uncommon as part of the presentation in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). However, infiltrative peripheral neuropathy due to AML was rarely reported. We report a case of extramedullary leukaemic infiltration of the brachial plexus in a patient with relapsed AML.
