All Hematological Malignancies are on the rise as compared to few decades back worldwide but, it’s major unt is faced by the under developed countries of the world. A retrospective study in a Government Teaching Hospital was undertaken to characterize Pattern and Distribution of HMs in children in Chhattisgarh state of India. A total number of 65 Bone Marrow Aspiration Cytology cases were evaluated from 1st January 2019 to 31st December 2019 for a period of 1 year. Pediatric Population was categorized into 3 age groups – 0–2 years, 2–12 years and 12–16 years. Male to Female ratio was 2.4:1 in our study with most cases being of Acute Leukemias (95.4%). On further evaluation, ALL had highest numbers with 37 cases (57.0 %) followed by Acute Leukemia and AML with 14 (21.52%) & 10 (15.38%) cases respectively.
