To the editor: To his compilation of "Premonitory Signs for an Impending Blastic Crisis" in chronic myelocytic leukemia, Dr. Theologides [Ann Intern Med 76:95-99, 1972] might add hypercalcemia. This complication has been seen in chronic myelocytic leukemia with multiple skeletal myeloblastomas (1) and can herald frank blastic transformation.
