New adnexal masses in a patient with a history of chronic myelogenous leukemia: a case report

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative neoplasm characterized by abnormal hyperplasia of granulocytes. Though not one of the common signs and symptoms, extramedullary hematopoiesis (EMH) can be associated with CML. Here we report a rare case of extramedullary hematopoietic infiltration of the ovaries in a patient with known CML who presented with rapidly developing adnexal masses.
