The oral signs and symptoms may reflect undetected serious systemic diseases. Depending on the oral manifestation, the dentists and physicians make attention and focusing on specific diagnoses. Here, we represent one such case which was diagnosed after oral signs and symptoms followed by peripheral smear report as chronic myeloid leukemia. Leukemia is among the most prevalent neoplasia, which represents between 30% and 51% of that total. Leukemia is characterized by uncontrolled production of immature white blood cells, causing a series of clinical and oral manifestations, which are important in disease diagnosis. Due to their clinical importance, all such lesions deserve the full attention of dental doctors. Early detection of leukemia is very important because it provides a favorable prognosis.
