Abstract

Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) is a rare neurodevelopmental genetic disorder associated with microdeletion at the long arm of chromosome 7 (7q11.23). Few cases have been reported with WBS with hemato ontological malignancies. Herein, we report Burkitt leukemia in a 5 year old girl with WBS. We like to call attention to the management of this rare combination.
