To build a risk score (RS) model of fatal intracranial hemorrhage (FICH) in patients with acute leukemia, we retrospectively assessed risk factors in 792 patients newly diagnosed with acute leukemia, 41 of whom had analyzable FICH. We found that female gender (relative risk (RR)=5.234, P<0.001), acute promyelocytic leukemia (RR=4.057, P=0.003), leukocytosis (RR=3.301, P=0.004), thrombocytopenia (RR=3.283, P=0.005) and prolonged prothrombin time (RR=3.291, P=0.016) were significantly associated… CONTINUE READING
