    A female patient, aged 44, with diabetes insipidus as a complication of acute myelomonocytic leukaemia (AMML) is described. She presented with bleeding, anaemia, polyuria and polydypsia. She was treated with intranasal vasopressin for diabetes insipidus and responded well to treatment. Chemotherapy was administered for the leukaemia and a full remission was achieved. The patient relapsed a few days before final admission to hospital and died of septicaemia 7 months after initial diagnosis. A short review of the literature related to this subject is also presented.
