Our study demonstrated that there were at least three types of CVD with specific clinicopathological features. Hemorrhagic infarction under agranulocyotosis was due to disseminated aspergillosis or mucormycosis. Multiple cerebral hemorrhages under marked leukocyotosis was due to leukemic cell infiltration into the brain. Massive cerebral hemorrhage was associated with coagulopathy including DIC.
