Richter's syndrome is an unusual complication of chronic lymphatic leukaemia. Its development is usually terminal in patients with a known history of chronic lymphatic leukaemia. It is characterized by fever, weight loss, lymphatdenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, dysgobulinaemia and a pelomorphic malignant lymphoma. It is debatable whether the large cell lymphomas arise de-novo or as a result of transformation of the pre-existing leukaemia. We describe a 52 year old patient with Richter's syndrome.
