Gives The purpose of this study was to compare cognitive brain functions of adolescents treated with acute lymphoblastic leukemia with a history of chemotherapy with non-affected counterparts.
Method: The present study was descriptive and of a causal type. The statistical population of this study was all the survivors of leukemia in Tehran, among which 50 survivors of leukemia were selected through targeted sampling from 96 to 95 years of age from a useful children's hospital and compared with 50 adolescents Indifferently and healthy, randomly selected from schools in Tehran. Data were collected by continuous performance tests, Wisconsin and London Tower, and analyzed by multivariate analysis of variance analysis.
Results: The results showed that between the two groups of adolescents treated with leukemia and their non-affected counterparts in terms of number of motions, planning time and thinking time in the London Tower test, completed classes of variables, completeness and number of correct answers in the Wisconsin test and error variables There was a significant difference between the removal and the committing error in the continuous performance test (P <0.05). However, there was no significant difference between the two groups in the response time of the continuous exercise test (P >0.05).
Conclusion: The existence of deep problems in the executive functions of people who have been treated with leukemia can have a significant effect on the life expectancy after treatment and jeopardize any benefit of survival.
