Congenital leukemia is rare and represents less than 1% of childhood leukemia. The newborn is not the elective patient of this pathology, but its occurrence at an early age is rare with a clinical presentation, sometimes atypical, must be highlighted, as well as their biological characteristics and their prognosis in our paper we report the case of a 34-day-old newborn whose clinical presentation was an anemic syndrome and an infectious syndrome without tumor syndrome; our observation illustrates an exceptional mode of revelation of acute leukemia in its hyperleukocytic form and the prognosis generally remains very poor, in particular for the lymphoblastic forms.
