Hematology and neurological disorders

Hematologic disorders can affect the central and peripheral nervous systems in several different ways, producing a wide range of neurologic disturbances. They result in nervous system disfunction through a variety of mechanisms, including vascular occlusion, hemorrhage, infiltration and metabolic disturbance, which may be hereditary or acquired. Its frequent cause of certain syndromes, such as venous thrombosis, but rarer causes of a wide range of neurologic conditions. Hematologic disease should be considered as a cause of subacute multifocal disorders.
