Chronic neutrophilic leukemia is a rare hematological disorder with hepatosplenomegaly and sustained mature neutrophilic leucocytosis. Increased serum vitamin B12, increased serum urine acid levels and increased leukocyte alkaline phosphatase activity are the associated features in the absence of fever or any other underlying disorder to cause leukemoid reaction. We report one such rare case.
