Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) have some clinical and pathological features in common. Each, however, has been shown to have specific astrocytic inclusions. CBD is characterized by astrocytic plaques, and PSP is characterized by tuft-shaped astrocytes. To clarify differences between these inclusions, we investigated intracerebral distribution of astrocytic plaques and tuft-shaped astrocytes in autopsied brains of patients with either CBD or PSP… Expand

TLDR
PSP and CBD present clinically differential diagnostic difficulties because of their overlapping pathological distributions and clinical symptoms depend on the topographical distribution and severity of degeneration rather than on the type of aggregated protein or inclusions. Expand
Spatial patterns of the tau pathology in progressive supranuclear palsy
TLDR
NFT were the most widespread tau-immunoreactive pathology in PSP being distributed randomly in subcortical regions and in regular clusters in cortical regions, and neuronal and glial cell pathologies were not spatially correlated. Expand
Diffusion Tensor Imaging Shows Different Topographic Involvement of the Thalamus in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy and Corticobasal Degeneration
TLDR
In patients with PSP, thalamic involvement was diffuse and prevalent in its anterior part, whereas in CBD involvement was asymmetric and confined to the motor thalamus, suggesting DTI may be useful in the differential diagnosis of these 2 parkinsonian disorders. Expand
Widespread spinal cord involvement in progressive supranuclear palsy
TLDR
It is speculated that spinal interneurons and their neuronal processes, particularly in the medial division of the anterior horn and intermediate gray matter of the cervical segment, are most severely damaged in the PSP spinal cord. Expand
Astrogliopathy in Tauopathies
TLDR
Astrogliopathy and astrocytopathy are hallmarks of tauopathies—neurodegenerative diseases with abnormal hyper-phosphorylated tau aggregates in neurons and glial cells. Expand
Pathology of the Superior Colliculus in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.
TLDR
The data suggest significant pathology affecting the superior colliculus in a proportion of chronic traumatic encephalopathy cases with a laminar distribution which could compromise motor function rather than sensory analysis. Expand
Staging disease severity in movement disorder tauopathies: Brain atrophy separates progressive supranuclear palsy from corticobasal degeneration
TLDR
The degree of global atrophy in PSP appears to be distinct from other tauopathies, while CBD fits the same pattern as other pathological forms of frontotemporal dementia. Expand
How to demix Alzheimer-type and PSP-type tau lesions out of their mixture -hybrid approach to dissect comorbidity-
TLDR
Analysis of five autopsied brains harboring both progressive supranuclear palsy and Alzheimer disease suggests 4R-selectivity with glial component suggests PSP origin, and demixing may be possible if biochemical difference of 4R tau between PSP and AD is identified. Expand
Neuronal Correlates of Clinical Asymmetry in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
TLDR
It is suggested that FDG PET imaging may assist the challenging clinical differentiation between hemi-PSP and corticobasal degeneration by depicting disease-specific patterns of regional cerebral glucose metabolism reflecting neuronal activity. Expand
Factors associated with development and distribution of granular/fuzzy astrocytes in neurodegenerative diseases
TLDR
In AGD, PSP, AD and PART cases, GFAs may show distinct distributions of GFAs, which may provide clues to predict the underlying processes of primary tauopathies, and the strongest independent factor of GFA formation in the frontal cortex and striatum was the diagnosis of PSP. Expand

Astrocytic plaques and tufts of abnormal fibers do not coexist in corticobasal degeneration and progressive supranuclear palsy
TLDR
It is concluded that astrocytic plaques and tufts of abnormal fibers are highly characteristic structures for CBD and typical PSP, respectively. Expand
Astrocytic pathology in progressive supranuclear palsy: significance for neuropathological diagnosis
TLDR
Although the absence of Tu-SA does not necessarily exclude the possibility of PSP,Tu-SA in the frontal lobe and putamen is highly suggestive for PSP. Expand
Immunohistochemical investigation of tau-positive structures in the cerebral cortex of patients with progressive supranuclear palsy
TLDR
It is demonstrated that coil-like structures (coiled bodies) are located in the oligodendroglial cell bodies of patients with progressive supranuclear palsy, and appear to be identical to 'astrocytic plaques' previously reported in patients with corticobasal degeneration (CBD). Expand
Tau accumulation in astrocytes in progressive supranuclear palsy is a degenerative rather than a reactive process
TLDR
Although reactive astrocytes were present around infarcts and senile plaques, TA were not associated with these lesions, consistent with the notion that tau accumulation inAstrocytic degeneration does not seem to contribute to gliosis or neuronal loss in PSP, and its clinical significance remains unclear.

Progressive supranuclear palsy with fronto-temporal atrophy and various tau-positive abnormal structures.
TLDR
It is suggested that PSP and corticobasal degeneration share a common background in neuronal and glial pathologies, that pathological changes of PSP and Alzheimer's disease are mixed in the entorhinal cortex, amygdala, and hypothalamus, and dementia is cortical dementia as well as subcortical dementia.

Distinct isoforms of tau aggregated in neurons and glial cells in brains of patients with Pick's disease, corticobasal degeneration and progressive supranuclear palsy
TLDR
Investigation of isoform composition of aggregated tau protein in brains with Pick's disease, corticobasal degeneration and progressive supranuclear palsy by immunoblot analysis of sarkosyl-insoluble fractions of brain homogenates suggests tau isoforms involved in the pathological processes differ between CBD/PSP and PiD, and are thus disease specific.

It is proposed that when the anterior portions of the frontal lobe are damaged, the clinical picture mimics those of Pick’s disease and PSP, and that focal cerebral atrophy of CBD is multicentric. Expand
