Neurological complications of hematological disease can present in many ways. The overwhelming majority of these neurologic complications are vascular in nature, owing to the fact that most hematological abnormalities lead to either thrombosis in the cerebral vasculature or brain hemorrhage. This chapter details stroke types which can occur in patients with known or subclinical hematological disease. The discussion includes the prevalence of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke in this patient population as well as various acute medical interventions and long term treatment options.
