My ornamental cherry tree, a graft, has many diseased leaves which are gnarled and have bright red blisters. Astonishingly, I cannot find a picture of this affliction anywhere on the web. What does it suffer from and can it be cured? For 3 years now I've been removing the afflicted leaves, but it keeps reappearing. Any advice would be much appreciated.

It looks like peach leaf curl which does affect ornamental cherries, spray with a fungicide, i find some seasons can be worse than others.

Julien, you are absolutely correct! Thanks a million!
I was prepared to remove the tree. Glad I didn't.
