Leukemia: neurologic complications
Leukemia is defined as a group of neoplasms characterized by circulating malignant cells arising from granulocytic or lymphoid precursors. Direct effects of leukemia on the nervous system include parenchymal, skull base, and meningeal metastases. Indirect effects of leukemia on the nervous system include cerebrovascular complications, such as stroke or hemorrhage from hyperviscosity syndromes, and infection or other iatrogenic complications.
