Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia in a child with Congenital Baldness: A Novel Presentation.
Int J Pathol Jan ;15(3):129-32.
Acute leukemia is most common in adults with a worldwide incidence of 351,965 cases in 2012 with a male: female ratio of 1.4. We present the case of a 12 years old female child with congenital baldness who was admitted to our hospital with complaints of epistaxis, gum bleed and petechial rash. She was diagnosed as a case of acute promyelocytic leukemia(APL) on bone marrow biopsy. This is a rare finding not previously reported in literature.
