We present a case report of a child who developed acute lymphoblastic leukemia, neurofibromatosis, optic glioma, and xanthogranulomatosis. This complex is unusual, not previously described, and appears to be a coincidence of different diseases. The importance of this case is that it may offer a clue to the genetic base of neurofibrosis syndromes including leukemic associations.
