Out of 70 cases of leukemia studied, 19 had neurological manifestations. All cases were autopsied. Leukemic infiltrates and intracranial hemorrhages produced various neurological manifestations. In autopsied cases 37.2% showed infiltrative changes. Intracranial hemorrhages contributed to 20%, the cause of which were due to thrombocytopenia and leukostasis. Leukemic nodules, demyelination and astrocytosis, gliosis were also seen on histopathology.
