Abstract: An unusual case of chronic myeloid leukemia presenting to the gynecological unit as a case of septic abortion is presented. Though history and clinical examination suggested the possibility of double pathology of septic abortion and chronic myeloid leukemia, histology of the products removed from the uterus showed it to be leukemic deposits. The diagnosis of leukemia was confirmed by marrow aspiration (trephine biopsy). Careful clinical examination and systematic investigation helped in diagnosing the pathology and to treat her appropriately. © 1987 Academic Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
