It is well known that the treatment protocols for hematopoetic neoplasms carry a high risk of long-term oncogenicity. However, few reports have been published of sarcomas as secondary malignancies. An unusual case report of a soft tissue sarcoma appearing as a secondary cancer is presented, with a review of the published data. The present report involves a soft tissue sarcoma of the neck that occurred 18 years after curative treatment of acute myeloid leukemia by induction chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation. Consecutive graft-versus-host disease affected the cervical skin. Soft tissue sarcomas appearing as secondary tumors are rare in oncology. The presented case describes the appearance of a sarcoma 18 years after curative treatment of acute myeloid leukemia. This is only the second case of this type reported in published studies.
