We report the occurrence of leukaemic infiltration of cervical spinal cord secondary to chronic_myeloid leukaemia (CML) in a 31-year-old male patient. He presented with left upper limb monoplegia. On examination he had asymmetric quadriparesis, graded sensory loss and urinary retention. Diagnosis was suggested by magnetic resonance imaging. He responded dramatically to radiotherapy and corticosteroids treatment. Infiltration of the cervical spinal cord in a patient with CML has seldom been reported in literature till date, and hence we are reporting this case.
