A patient with CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) can present with secondary neoplasms involving skin, lung, prostate, kidney, cutaneous melanoma and haematological malignancies. However CLL as a second neoplasm is rare. A 75 year old male presented to us with squamous cell carcinoma of palate and was treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Three years later he presented to us with B-phenotypic CLL. The interval to development of radiation induced leukemia is usually 7 years. Our patient either had undiagnosed CLL at presentation of developed early post radiotherapy CLL.
