The fine structure of cerebral cortex, including cortical tubers, was studied in 3 patients with tuberous sclerosis. Tubers were found to consist of two predominant cell populations, astroglia and small multipolar (stellate) neurons. Both cell types tended to form aggregates within tubers, with glia more prominent in the subpial region. The stellate neurons of tubers had beaded or varicose dendrites with few dendritic spines. The findings suggest that neurons within tubers are an aberrant… CONTINUE READING
