    Abstract

    A child presented with raised intracranial pressure for which no cause was established. Five months later a further cerebrospinal fluid examination showed lymphoblasts expressing the common acute lymphoblastic leukaemia phenotype. Bone marrow infiltration was not present. This case illustrates the difficulties that may be encountered in establishing the diagnosis of central nervous system leukaemia.
