Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) typically seen in older patients, increases with age. Patients often are asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis and the disease is found incidentally on examination of blood. Oral ulceration, petechiae, mucosal bleeding, gingival enlargement, acute periodontitis, noma, trismus and oral infections are the most common oral manifestations. It occurs either due to direct infiltration of leukemic cells (primary) or secondary to underlying thrombocytopenia, neutropenia or impaired granulocyte function. We present a rare case of buccal space hematoma secondary to CML.

Keywords: Chronic myeloid leukemia, Buccal space hematoma, Facial swelling, Oral manifestation.
