Cup‑like acute myeloid leukemia (CL AML) is a rare form of acute myeloid leukemia, but its frequency is probably underestimated because it is a poorly understood and little described entity. Characterized by a particular biological profile: hyperleukocytosis, massive blastosis, disseminated intravenous coagulation, nuclei marked by a clear nuclear invagination, relatively stereotyped immunophenotype: CD34- / HLA-DR- / MPO + / CD117 + / CD13 +. Often associated with a normal karyotype, CL AML cytology is highly predictive of molecular abnormalities affecting NPM1 and FLT3.
