The new WHO classification of hematopoietic and lymphatic neoplasms was devised to offer pathologists, oncologists, and geneticists a system of classification based on histopathologic, clinical, and genetic features. From the neurologic standpoint, it offers an opportunity to consolidate the complications produced by leukemias, lymphomas, and plasma cell dyscrasias. This article summarizes such complications that occur as a result of direct infiltration or compression of nervous tissue by tumor or as a result of indirect effects such as infection, vascular disorders, iatrogenesis, and paraneoplasia.
