Cranial magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the cerebral areas of 40 patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA) and of 61 age-matched controls were analyzed. The cerebral area of MSA patients was 131. 95+/-15.89 cm(2) (mean+/-S.D.), which was significantly smaller than that of normal controls at 149.01+/-10.93 cm(2) (P<0.0001). All 23 MSA cases subjected to(More)
Several investigators have revealed features of multiple system atrophy (MSA) by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). For use in clinical diagnosis, we determined the exact time when two main features of pontine and putaminal intensity changes appeared. Furthermore, in order to reveal the course from when the disorder first appeared and how it spread, we also(More)
The deposition of abnormal levels of tau protein is a major neuropathological feature of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), and the presence of tuft-shaped astrocytes is a neuropathological hallmark of PSP. We examined the topographic distribution of tuft-shaped astrocytes in the cerebral hemisphere by Gallyas-Braak silver staining in three Japanese(More)
