    Chronic myeloid leukemia mimicking primary myelofibrosis: A case report

    Anju S*, Jayalakshmy PL and Sankar Sundaram

    Bone marrow fibrosis leading to dry tap aspiration and often associated with blast crisis has previously been reported in both Chronic myeloid leukemia and Primary myelofibrosis. The similarities between these two conditions in terms of clinical presentation and morphology can really create a diagnostic dilemma. Here we present a case of Chronic myeloid leukemia in fibrosis and blast crisis in a 32 year old lady which closely resembled Primary myelofibrosis in transformation. All myeloproliferative neoplasms can undergo blast transformation. In this case, the detection of Philadelphia chromosome helped to distinguish Chronic myeloid leukemia from other myeloproliferative neoplasms.
