Alzheimer's disease (AD) in humans is a progressive neurogenic disease that can be linked with such characteristic pathological findings in the cerebrum as senile plaques (SPs), neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs), cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), and neuronal loss. In the present study, the authors investigated the age-related morphological changes in 12(More)
Porencephaly was observed in a female cynomolgus monkey (Macaca fascicularis) aged 5 years and 7 months. The cerebral hemisphere exhibited diffuse brownish excavation with partial defects of the full thickness of the hemispheric wall, and it constituted open channels between the lateral ventricular system and arachnoid space. In addition, the bilateral(More)
Inter-specific comparison of growth was conducted among three Sebastes species (Sebastes inermis, Sebastes ventricosus and Sebastes cheni) which have previously been treated as a single species before the 2008 taxonomic review. Fish were collected in April 2010 for DNA analysis and each month from June 2011 to May 2012 for growth analysis in the central(More)
Venous malformations in the posterior fossa are relatively rare. Although the introduction of CT and MRI has made them easier to detect, their treatment is still controversial. Based on our experience with six patients and a review of the literature, we have tried to establish guidelines for their treatment. Since they have a benign natural course and may(More)
In a seven-year-old male cynomolgus monkey, erythema of the upper eyelid and forehead and corneal opacity, edema and conical protrusion in the eye were observed. At necropsy, ophthalmological and serological examinations revealed binocular corneal opacity and conical protrusion and a high IgE level, respectively. Thinning of the epithelium and stroma of the(More)
The occurrence of a post-traumatic epidural hematoma in two patients with long-standing "arrested" hydrocephalus is reported. There was a relatively long interval between the head injury and the onset of symptoms. The large hematoma was accommodated by the decrease in size of the markedly dilated ventricles. This report stresses the possibility of the(More)
Ossifying fibroma is relatively common in the maxilla, but rare in the cranial vault. A 10-year-old girl was referred for painful swelling of the left temporal region. On admission, she presented no abnormal physical and neurological findings except for the painful swelling. Plain skull X-ray films showed a radiolucent lesion of the left temporal bone about(More)
Although computed tomography may change the criteria of cerebral angiography in neurosurgery, the neurosurgeon still requires angiographic confirmation of vascular anatomy at the operative sites, and catheterization for intra-luminal constructive surgery is also seeing progress. Cerebral angiography is a rather safe procedure; however, persistent serious(More)
