Lhermitte-Duclos disease is a rare, benign cerebellar condition that mimics a posterior fossa mass and has never been diagnosed preoperatively. Grossly, the diseased cerebellar tissue is tough and poorly demarcated; microscopically, the cortex has a thick outer layer of nerve fibers, an inner layer of abnormal ganglion cells, and the absence of normal(More)
Subependymomas are relatively unusual tumors with a distinctive histological appearance. They are generally considered to be benign, and they are often found incidentally at autopsy. Most are located intracranially, and the most common site of origin is the fourth ventricle. Only two cases of subependymoma of the spinal cord have been reported previously.(More)
The morphologic description and measurements of endarterectomy specimens are usually believed to be accurate and are used as the gold standard against which the findings of diagnostic procedures are judged. Pathology data on 289 endarterectomy specimens from five participating centers and the corresponding angiography and B-mode ultrasonography data(More)
The transmission and serial propagation of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease from man to guinea pigs are reported. The latency, symptomatology, and morphology of the infection during the first four passages are presented. The incubation period between the first and subsequent passages was halved. One hundred percent take, morbidity, and mortality were achieved in(More)
Brain and cervical spinal cord removed at autopsy from hypertensive humans have been subjected to 4 levels of microscopic study, 3 being first histochemically prepared so as to stain the arterial and capillary system. Thick (100 microns) sections for light microscopy and thicker (500-1000 microns) for x-ray microscopy facilitate the study of long, complex(More)
