AbstractAbstract PDF
The incidence of acute leukemia during pregnancy is extremely rare, and often it is not easy to differentiate it from other diseases associated with pregnancy such as sepsis or hemorrhage. Pregnancy itself is not known to affect the natural course of leukemia; however, complications of leukemia like anemia, infections, and coagulopathy can adversely influence both the fetus and the mother. In this case, a pregnant patient misdiagnosed with septic shock and severe leukocytosis was correctly diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia after surgical delivery.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common cause of respiratory tract infection in children. Although previously considered as children's virus, the increasing number of patients who receive immunosuppression after transplantation of bone marrow and solid organs highlighted the role of RSV as a pathogen for opportunistic infection. We report a case of community-acquired respiratory syncytial virus pneumonia in a patient with newly diagnosed leukemia, resulting in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
