We report a 43-year-old female, with acute promyelocytic leukemia occurring after 9 months of treatment for carcinoma breast. The diagnosis of APL was made on morphology, cytogenetics and molecular studies. In contrast to other published report of therapy related APL (tAPL) the present case presented early after the primary malignancy and underwent a rapid, downhill course.
