Another feature that is seen in monocytic leukemia is "hiatus leukemicus," which is demonstrated on this slide. In this instance, the term "hiatus" means a lack of cell stages of maturation between blasts and mature cells. The majority of the cells are blasts and mature neutrophils. Hiatus leukemicus is seen in acute leukemias with a monocytic component (AMML and AMoL).
