A brief description is given of neurofibrillary changes of the paired helical filament type in a variety of chronic neurological diseases. These include subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, lead encephalopathy, tuberous sclerosis, Down syndrome, Hallervorden‐Spatz disease, and lipofuscinosis. In these conditions, with the exception of Hallervorden‐Spatz disease, neurofibrillary changes were previously recognized but paired helical filaments were identified only in some cases. Moreover, in the… 
The Nature of Neurofibrillary Tangles
Dementia of the Alzheimer type (ATD), both presenile and senile, has a characteristic brain histopathology comprising neurofibrillary tangles (NFT), senile plaques, granulovacuolar bodies and Hirano
Neurofibrillary pathology in progressive supranuclear palsy
TLDR
The fine structure of the subcortical neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) in 2 cases of progressive supranuclear palsy suggests that the NFT in PSP may be similar to those of Alzheimer type occurring in various conditions.
Neuroaxonal dystrophy with neuromelanin deposition, neurofibrillary tangles, and neuronal loss
TLDR
In the authors' opinion the fine floccular pigment seen electron-microscopically in many of the axonal spheroids is melanin, an end product of catecholamine metabolism.
Neurofibrillary tangles, granulovacuolar degeneration, and neuron loss in down syndrome: Quantitative comparison with alzheimer dementia
The degree of neurofibrillary tangle formation, granulovacuolar degeneration, and nerve cell loss was quantified in serial sections of the hippocampal formation from the brains of 5 adults dying with
Cerebellar plaques in familial Alzheimer's disease (Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker variant?)
A large kindred, with two brothers coming to autopsy, of a syndrome consisting of ataxia, dementia, and some Parkinsonian features is reported; inheritance appears to be autosomal dominant.
Creutzfeldt‐Jakob disease with plaques and paired helical filaments
TLDR
This patient had features of both Creutzfeldt‐Jakob disease and Alzheimer's disease, providing additional support for the existence of an overlap between these disorders.
Neuropathology of Alzheimer's disease.
Neurofibrillary tangle predominant form of senile dementia of Alzheimer type: a rare subtype in very old subjects
TLDR
This rare subtype occurring in very old (over 80 years of age) subjects that does not fall within the currently used neuropathological criteria for diagnosis of AD warrants further clinico-pathological documentation.
Ganglioglioma with neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs): neoplastic NFTs share antigenic determinants with NFTs of Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
The demonstration in the neoplasm of abnormally phosphorylated and ubiquitinated cytoskeletal components, similar in morphology and in immunoreactivity to those seen in NFTs of Alzheimer's disease, suggest that similar pathogenetic mechanisms may operate in both conditions.

The brain revealed diffuse cortical atrophy, most severe in the temporal lobes, followed by hippocampi, amygdaloid nuclei and frontal cortex, and Numerous pyramidal cells of the forebrain grisea contained Alzheimer's neurofibrillary tangles.
Paired helical filaments of the Alzheimer type in cultured neurones
TLDR
Evidence is presented that paired helical filaments morphologically closely resembling those found in the human disease are induced in cultured human foetal cerebral cortical neurones after exposure to an extract prepared from Alzheimer-affected brain.
Alzheimer's neurofibrillary changes. A topographic study.
TLDR
Recent observations of neurofibrillary changes in 2 fatal neurologic diseases occurring on the island of Guam, the parkinsonism-dementia complex and the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis syndrome, revealed their quite remarkable numbers and symmetric changes.
PRESENILE PSYCHOSIS OF THE JAKOB TYPE
TLDR
The case of a man aged 53, who showed an organic type of dementia accompanied by wasting and fibrillation of the muscles of the upper extremities, is described, considered an instance of presenile psychosis of the Jakob's type (cortico-striato-spinal degeneration).
A CASE OF CLINICAL JUVENILE AMAUROTIC IDIOCY WITH THE HISTOLOGICAL PICTURE OF ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
TLDR
The clinical picture of juvenile amaurotic idiocy was originally described in Norway by Stengel in 1826 and held the opinion that a definite diagnosis could be based on the clinical picture alone, because this was exactly the same from case to case.
Parkinsonism-dementia complex, an endemic disease on the island of Guam. I. Clinical features.
TLDR
The main purpose of this paper is to present the pertinent neuropathological features of the 17 necropsied cases of Parkinsonism with presenile dementia reported here were autopsied.
Aluminium, neurofibrillary degeneration and Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
The aluminium content of 585 areas sampled in 10 post-mortem cases of Alzheimer's disease ranging in age from 50 to 88 years, in which the diagnosis was based on the specific histological appearances, revealed an elevated aluminium content in some regions.
ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE: A CONTRIBUTION TO ITS ETIOLOGY AND CLASSIFICATION
TLDR
The disease process first described by Alzheimer and subsequently named after him by Kraepelin has since received consistent proof of its existence as an entity, but the proper clinical interpretation and definition of its relation to other conditions has met with difficulties.
CEREBRAL CHANGES IN GASTRO-INTESTINAL INFECTIONS WITH TERMINAL CACHEXIA: HISTOPATHOLOGIC STUDIES ON DYSENTERY, WITH COMMENTS ON SIMILAR OBSERVATIONS IN INTESTINAL TUBERCULOSIS
TLDR
One group of manifestations in the clinical neuropsychiatric picture as probably due to inflammatory processes was considered, which seemed to be merely "toxic," which term refers especially to some patients with symptomatic psychotic behavior; but the term toxic should be subjected to analysis.
