Splenomegaly is the most common physical examination finding at the time of diagnosis of CML. In more than 50% of patients with CML, the spleen extends more than 5 cm below the left costal margin at the time of discovery. Hepatomegaly is also frequently noted. Lymphadenopathy is not expected in CML. Bruising and rash both may occur in CML as well.
