A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 94 children with leukemia, admitted in the Hematology Service of the Teaching Southern Children Hospital from Santiago de Cuba was carried out during the five year period 2006-2010, in order to describe the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of these patients. The disease prevailed in the age group of more than 8 years and in males, while among the clinical forms of presentation there were: the anemic syndrome, the purpureal and hemorrhagic manifestations and fever. The type of leukemia mostly observed was the lymphoblastic acute leukemia and that of higher mortality, was the chronic myeloid leukemia. Infections and hemorrhages were the most important complications in the series.
