Posterior Segment Involvement as Initial Presentations of Patients Withchronic Myeloid Leukemia
Asian Journal of Research and Reports in Ophthalmology,
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative neoplasm. Ophthalmologic manifestations are among the therapeutic challenges. Here we present two cases of CML (chronic phase) with posterior segment involvement as initial presentation, trying to shed light on this important type of presentation and view of the current literature.
- Chronic myeloid leukemia
- ophthalmologic manifestations
