Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) is a rare and aggressive hematologic malignancy. It is associated with poor prognosis and heterogenous presentation. The CD123-directed cytotoxin, Tagraxofusp, is a targeted therapy for BPDCN. Here, we report an 81-year-old female diagnosed with BPDCN. The patient was treated with Tagraxofusp and underwent a remarkably long remission (>20 months) without stem-cell transplantation. She, however, experienced blue toe syndrome and left foot gangrene. We postulate that these previously unreported side effects were caused by microembolization. Characterization of the incidence of thrombo- and microembolizations in such a context, as well as prophylactic management options, are warranted.
