We are presenting here, an interesting case of a 4-year old girl who presented to our department with hepatosplenomegaly, fever, gum bleeding and oedema. She turned out to be a case of osteopetrosis, which is a rare autosomal recessive inherited disorder. We should consider this disease as a differential diagnosis when we encounter hepatosplenomegaly and myelopthisic anaemia..
