A 64-year-old man affected by acute monoblastic leukemia developed a cutis verticis gyrata during the terminal phase of hemopathy. The association between these two diseases is rare. The classification of cutis verticis gyrata in primary essential, primary non-essential and secondary forms is reviewed. Performing a skin biopsy is necessary in the diagnostic approach to patients with cutis verticis gyrata.
