Abstract

Hematologic malignancies are becoming more prevalent, manifesting in various clinical scenarios. Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is usually diagnosed on routine complete blood count as it is typically asymptomatic. However, it can cause multiple signs and symptoms. We present a patient with appendicitis revealing CML during his workup for abdominal pain.
