We reported a case of a twelve year old girl diagnosed as chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), metabolic acidosis and poor nutrional status. The chief complaints were bulging abdomen, without abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, accompanied by episodic pain in the lower extremities and buttocks without swelling or redness.

The laboratory findings were normochromic normocytic anemia, leucocytosis with shift to the left, myelocyte and neutrophil domination, thrombocytosis, hypercellular bone marrow with hyperactive granulopoiesis and megakaryocyte, erythropoiesis and NAP score decreased and the result of blood gas analysis was partially compensated metabolic acidosis with hypoxemia.
