Myeloid sarcoma is a disease that involves first the breast with rapid systemic dissemination. There is no scientific standard consensus on surgical and medical treatment of myeloid sarcoma of the breast and there is no role for radical surgery because chemotherapy and radiotherapy are required for longer survival.
