Leukostasis retinopathy: a threatening complication of CML
The present case has been published in the Indian Journal of Ophthalmology.

A 21-year-old male visited the hospital complaining of 1-week painless binocular acute visual loss without any other symptoms.

The patient was diagnosed with CML. He then received emergent leukapheresis with imatinib treatment, which achieved obvious hematological remission. However, the visual acuity did not recover along with the CML remission and ocular structure relief.

Key takeaways:-
- CML-related leukostasis could induce severe leukostasis retinopathy.

- Hematologists and ophthalmologists should pay more attention to this relatively rare and severe complication of CML.
