Abstract

Hyperleukocytosis in leukaemia causes leukostasis, which can lead to thrombosis of arterial systems of various organs and cause renal and retinal thrombosis, acute limb ischemia and myocardial infarction. We report a case of an eight-year-old male child who had pericardial thrombus formation consequential to hyperleukocytosis. Keywords Hyperleukocytosis, Leukostasis, Pericardial thrombus, Leukemia
