While the peripheral blood and bone marrow findings initially suggested essential thrombocythemia, BCR-ABL1 translocation was detected and chronic myeloid leukemia, chronic phase, was diagnosed. Apheresis for platelet depletion was performed as a bridge given the delayed effects of medical therapy. *Division of Hematology/Oncology, Phoenix Children’s Hospital †Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Phoenix, AZ The authors declare no conflict of interest.
