Abstract

We report a case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in a 7-year-old female patient who had complained of limitation of motion and pain on knee and ankle joints 5 months ago. She had been initially diagnosed as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and received prednisone (PDS), which delayed the accurate diagnosis of the disease. But finally she has been diagnosed with ALL by the bone marrow aspiration and biopsy being done after the discontinuation of PDS with the help of leukemic suspicion of radiologic study.
