Abstract A 10-year-old boy presenting with recurrent successive events of peripheral arterial occlusion in both legs, more prominent on the left side, was diagnosed as having acute promyelocytic leukemia. Histological examination of the occluding material showed that it was composed of leukemic blast cells. The boy underwent five operations. Each time the arterial flow was reestablished by removing cylindrical hollow white material obstructing the lumen. However, after the last operation, irreversible ischemia developed, necessitating an above-knee amputation. There was no evidence of disseminated intravascular coagulation. Three months later a right lumbar sympathectomy was performed for relief of causalgic-ischemic pains, with successful results. Preoperative angiography demonstrated irregular narrowing of the right iliac arteries and tibioperoneal trunk stenosis.
