Though an increasing number of chemotherapy‐ and radiotherapy‐related leukaemias are being reported, acute promyclocytic leukaemia developing as a therapy‐related second malignancy is still uncommon. Here we report a case of acute promyetocytic leukemia, microgranular variant, developing in a case of intracranial malignant ependymoma, 1.5 years following treatment with craniospinal radiotherapy.
