Abstract

Chronic myeloid leukemia(CML) usually remains asymptomatic and has varied clinical presentation. The disease usually has a chronic course till it goes into blast crisis when it develops fever, other constitutional symptoms and bleeding manifestations as seen in acute leukemia. Here, we present a case that came to our emergency department as a case of acute abdomen in the form of massive retroperitoneal hematoma and subsequently proved to be a case of Philadelphia positive CML with blast crisis.
