Filariasis, a tropical parasite infection, is a common public health problem in the Indian sub-continent. Occurrence of filariasis with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is unusual though there are case reports of leishmaniasis, malaria, and other vector-borne diseases seen in association with leukemias. Filariasis co-existing with CML has not been documented to the best of our knowledge and hence definitely needs a space in literature. We report an incidental finding of bancroftian filariasis in a 35-year-old female already diagnosed as CML.
