Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is rare locally. Seven CLL patients which constituted 0.9% of the total 747 cases of leukaemic patients were diagnosed over a 5 year period. They had similar haematological profiles as Western patients though most of them had advanced disease at presentation. Treatment of CLL patients was palliative and should be reserved for symptomatic patients and/or patients with progressive disease.
