Midostaurin is a tyrosine multikinase inhibitor approved for the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with mutated Fms-like tyrosine kinase-3. We describe a case report of a 49-year-old AML patient treated with an intensive chemotherapy regimen followed by midostaurin. After achieving complete remission with blood count recovery, he suffered from a serious, rare complication of necrotizing hemorrhagic gastritis with no evidence of infection or malignant infiltration, possibly associated with midostaurin therapy.
