Hypocellular acute myeloid leukemia (H-AML) is an infrequent entity. Its frequency ranges between 5-12% of all
cases of AML [1,2]. Hypocellular AML is currently defined as AML with a bone marrow cellularity < 20%,
although in some earlier reports, cellularity < 40% or 50% was considered to be hypocellular [2,3]. We report a rare
case of hypocellular AML-M5 occurring in a 75-year-old man.
Keywords: hypoplastic acute myeloid leukemia, H-AML, AML-M5.
