Abstract

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), has caused a global health crisis. COVID-19 can have a multifaceted presentation, and a wide range of complications and outcomes may emerge based on the severity and comorbidities of the infected patient. We report the case of a 42-year-old man with a history of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) on dasatinib (in major molecular response) who was diagnosed with COVID-19 and developed pancytopenia. Our case report and review of available publications add to the limited literature available regarding COVID-19 in CML.
