Digital gangrene in chronic myeloid leukaemia

John Chinawaeze Aneke, Ebele Adaobi Muoghalu, Emmanuel Chide Okocha

Abstract


Digital necrosis is an uncommon presentation of chronic myeloid leukaemia.

A male Nigerian with chronic myeloid leukaemia, in accelerated phase with hyperleucocytosis, leucostatic symptoms and gangrene of the right third toe is presented. He had conservative management consisting of combination chemotherapy with partial exchange blood transfusion; having rejected digit disarticulation. Patient achieved full digit recovery on conservative management alone.

This case suggests that digit gangrene in chronic myeloid leukaemia may respond to conservative management with combination chemotherapy and other supportive treatment.

Keywords
