Abstract
A case of adult acute lymphoblastic leukaemia is reported. A 35-year-old male presented with an osteolytic lesion of the mandible. There was no definitive involvement in other craniofacial bones. A panoramic radiograph taken 4 months previously showed no bony involvement. A complete blood count showed a slightly decreased red blood cell count, but normal white blood cell count, white blood cell differential count and platelet count. Routine chemistry revealed hypercalcemia with an increased level of parathyroid hormone-related protein. Histopathological examination of bone marrow biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
