In addition, we(More)
Intraventricular tumors may arise from a variety of cells in the region. There are some difficulties in diagnosing these tumors because of their histologically similar appearance. We analyzed intraventricular tumors, including central neurocytoma, oligodendroglioma, cerebral neuroblastoma, and cerebellar neuroblastoma, the neuronal characters of which were(More)

Japan used be an endemic area of S. japonicum infection for 40 years ago. But now all of Japan is a non-endemic area of S. japonicum infection.(More)
Argentophilic neurofibrillary tangles were described in the cerebral cortex of Alzheimer's disease and later in the pigmented neurons in the brain stem of postencephalitic parkinsonism. In 1961, wide distribution of Alzheimer's neurofibrillary tangles in the central nervous system was observed in endemic fatal neurodegenerative diseases affecting the native(More)
