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.
