Abstract

<p>Chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) is a disease of older adults. Pediatric CLL/SLL is vanishingly rare in the literature. We present a case of CLL/SLL diagnosed in a 17-year-old male. The pathologic findings of this case were those of classic CLL/SLL with an ATM deletion, a characteristic genetic abnormality in CLL/SLL. Management guidelines for CLL/SLL are tailored to older adults making determination of the optimal therapy for this patient a unique challenge.</p>
