[Clinical Picture] Chilling to the marrow: finding extramedullary haematopoiesis in an unusual location behind the xiphoid

An 80-year-old man with a 1-week history of a red, swollen, and painful right leg presented to our emergency department. Additionally, he had reported long-term fatigue. A deep vein thrombosis was excluded after an ultrasound of his leg and he was found to have an infected ulcer caused by chronic venous insufficiency and an iron deficiency anaemia. The patient was referred to our clinic for further exploration of his anaemia and painful leg.
