This case study presents an extraordinary clinical and pathologic phenomenon in a 42 year female, whose peripheral blood and bone marrow were diagnostic of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) and who had generalised enlargement of lymph nodes. FNA of the lymph nodes revealed that a Myeloblasts transformation to acute leukemia was taking place in the lymph nodes. This study shows the importance of FNA in the diagnosis of localised extramedullar (lymph node) blast crisis in CML.
