Although neurologic disorders are frequent in the acute leukemias, their clinical aspects generally have not been emphasized. Reports of nervous system manifestations in this disease have been published, but they have been either reviews of the literature1, 2, 3, 4 or based upon retrospective studies.3, 4 We have recently had an opportunity to observe the neurologic manifestations in a group of patients with acute leukemia. The purpose of the present communication is to direct attention to their frequency and course.
This report comprises observations made on 63 patients with proved acute leukemia admitted to the National Cancer Institute
