We describe the case of a 72-year-old man who developed unilateral digital necrosis, four years after diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). The etiology of this paraneoplastic phenomenon appears multiple. The digital necrosis responded well to an aggressive varied treatment. The unusual association of CML with digital necrosis and the etiology of this rare paraneoplastic complication are discussed.
