Patients with haematological malignancies require admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) due to the underlying disease, as a consequence of treatment with chemotherapy or after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. With an increasing numbers of patients being diagnosed with these diseases and longer survival as treatments improve, the burden on ICU is anticipated to increase. There is compelling evidence that patients should not be denied admission to ICU based on the presence of a haematological malignancy. In this chapter the disease- and treatment-related reasons for ICU admission, outcome, and risk prediction scores for patients with haematological malignancies are discussed.
