Chloroma is....: A solid leukemia mass, also known as a granulocytic sarcoma, that is traditionally associated with aml. Indeed, chloromas are often associated with specific subtypes of aml, such as those that have the t(8;21) translocation. Treatment for them is the chemotherapy for the disease, although radiation therapy is sometimes used if the chloroma places adjacent structures at risk. Talk with your doctor.
