Juvenile neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinosis is associated with a moderate numerical decrease of isocortical neurons. From Nissl preparations, it is not apparent, whether this neuronal rarefication occurs at random or affects specific types of cortical neurons. Lipopigment preparations facilitate the distinction between pyramidal and stellate cells. In juvenile neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinosis, they reveal an almost complete to total loss of small pigment-laden stellate cells. This type of local… CONTINUE READING
