We present a case of COVID-19 infection in a SCD patient causing severe hemolysis, that improved after RBC exchange.
Hematologic malignancies are becoming more prevalent, manifesting in various clinical scenarios. Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is usually diagnosed on routine complete blood count as it is typically asymptomatic. However, it can cause multiple signs and symptoms.
