Inspite of being a myeloproliferative disorder, abnormal bleeding is one of the rare manifestations of Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) especially during chronic phase. This abnormal bleeding can have varied symptomatology depending upon the site of bleed. Sometime it may so happen in a clinical scenario that presence of underlying CML may come to attention by the symptoms of hematoma. We report a case of acute myelopathy because of spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma (SSEH) which turned out to be because of underlying undiagnosed CML.
