Leukemia is a very rare condition in pregnancy. The pathology itself poses a great challenge to the anesthesiologist due to the inherent risks such as blast crisis, tumor lysis syndrome, anemia, and thrombocytopenia. The authors present the case of a 30-year-old G3P2002, complicated by profound thrombocytopenia refractory to platelet transfusion who underwent general anesthesia for cesarean section.
