Abstract
Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) is an uncommon condition and it is characterized by the presence of gas within bowel wall. The cause of PI is diverse; although specific etiologic factors remain unknown. PI can be seen infrequently in leukemia and be associated with several medical and surgical conditions. Sometimes; PI can be presented from a benign to a fatal situation. Plain radiographs can diagnose all most all cases. Now a day; using CT scan is increased. And that makes easy to diagnose of PI. Here; we report a case of PI that developed in recovery phase after induction chemotherapy in a 46 year-old woman; with Ph+ ALL.
