A 10-month-old girl with acute monocytic leukemia is presented. Ultrasound of the abdomen on admission showed an unusual distribution of leukemia infiltrates in the stomach and liver. The leukemic infiltrates in the wall of the stomach presented as intraluminal polyps, while the leukemic infiltration of the liver was strictly confined to the portal vessels.
