Abstract

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common malignancy in childhood. Initial symptoms of ALL are usually non specific. Anorexia, fatigue, malaise, low grade fever are often present. Bone pains particularly in lower extremities may be present but for atypical presentation a high degree of clinical suspicion is required. Bone involvement is seen in only 25% of people as initial presentation. We are presenting a case of ALL which was diagnosed after MRI changes were observed in the lower limbs.
