INTRODUCTION: T-cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia (T-PLL) is a rare post-thymic malignancy which comprises two percent of mature lymphoid malignancies1. It is a very aggressive disease with minimal response to conventional chemotherapy and a median survival of approximately seven months2. Common presentations include hepatosplenomegaly (40-73%), lymphadenopathy (53%) or cutaneous lesions (23%)2. Given the aggressive nature of this disease, prompt recognition and diagnosis is required to reduce mortality. We present a case of a 63 year old male who presented with pleural effusion and was subsequently diagnosed with T-PLL.
