The most severe hemorrhagic manifestation of leukemia is clinically named as ecchymoses. We may recognize the term as a bruise, a large area that looks either purple, red, or yellowish, depending on the evolution of the lesion. This results from a severe hemorrhage under your skin and is usually triggered by a major trauma in healthy patients, or spontaneously in leukemia patients.
