Alzheimer's disease is characterized by relative sparing of primary sensory and motor cortex and a lack of sensory or motor symptomatology. We report a case of presenile onset dementia accompanied by a slowly progressive hemiparesis. Autopsy examination showed severe pathologic involvement of somatosensory cortex with neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary(More)
Delayed radiation damage of normal brain can be a devastating complication of radiation therapy and generally occurs months to years after the initiation of therapy. Primarily restricted to the white matter, radiation damage is characterized by a number of histopathologic changes including coagulation necrosis, vascular alterations with fibrinoid necrosis,(More)
A quantitative survey of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in brain, peripheral nerve and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was performed using radioimmunoassay (RIA) with antiserum against synthetic hCGRP. High levels (approximately 2000-15,000 fmol/mg protein) were found in the dorsal spinal cord, dorsal nerve and trigeminal nerve. Relatively large amounts(More)
Cortical Lewy bodies may be difficult to differentiate from Pick bodies by the usual staining methods. This problem is illustrated in a case of progressive dementia with parkinsonian features. Lewy bodies were found, not only in the pigmented nuclei in the brainstem and in the cerebral cortex, but also in the dentate fascia, a predilection site for Pick(More)
A case is presented of the ataxic variety of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease with particular reference to the cerebellar cortex. The main features were loss of granule cells, subtotal in the vermis, severe in the lateral lobes, mild to moderate loss of Purkinje cells and preservation of tangential and basket fibres. The Purkinje cell dendrites showed(More)
