SummaryAn autopsy case of unclassifiable presenile dementia is reported. The outstanding pathological findings were as follows;1.presence of senile plaques, neurofibrillary changes, Pick bodies, Hirano bodies, granulovacuolar degeneration of neurons, etc.2.numerous Lewy bodies in the brain stem and diencephalon,3.peculiar swollen neurons with intracytoplasmic, eosinophilic and argentophilic inclusions (“Lewy-like-bodies”) in the cerebral cortices. Detailed study of the last mentioned inclusions… Expand
Dementia-parkinsonism syndrome with numerous lewy bodies and senile plaques in cerebral cortex
TLDR
Five cases of age range 62–72 years with progressive dementia and muscular rigidity are reported and discussed from the clinicopathologic point of view, characterized by the widespread occurrence of Lewy bodies in the CNS as well as the presence of senile changes. Expand
Presenile dementia with Lewy bodies and neurofibrillary tangles.
TLDR
The findings suggest a closer relationship between Lewy bodies and neurofibrillary tangles than usually suspected and speculate that the presence of one type of age change in the brain may accelerate or predispose to other age changes. Expand
Atypical senile dementia with widespread Lewy type inclusion in the cerebral cortex
TLDR
The pathological findings were unexpected since the parkinsonian syndrome was not recognized, and the inclusions in the cerebral cortex had a strong resemblance to the Lewy bodies in the substantia nigra, though a few histochemical and ultrastructural differences were observed. Expand
Cortical changes in the parkinsonian brain: a contribution to the delineation of “diffuse Lewy body disease”
TLDR
A group of 55 autopsy cases of paralysis agitans were studied with special attention to distribution of Lewy bodies and cortical changes, and Clinicopathologically, the cases in groups B and C correspond to classical paralysis agitan. Expand

TLDR
Almost all cases with the pure form of DLBD showed juvenile Parkinson's Syndrome, followed by progressive cortical dementia, although there was one presenile case with mild dementia and Parkinson's syndrome, compared with cases reported in Western countries. Expand

TLDR
This article cites several seminal observations regarding the clinical presentation, nosologic history, and pathology of DLB. Expand
Dementia with Lewy bodies: the principles of diagnostics, treatment, and management.
TLDR
Differential diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies focuses on other later life dementia syndromes, other parkinsonian diseases (Parkinson's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration), and primary psychiatric illnesses. Expand
Dementia with cerebral Lewy bodies. A mesocortical dopaminergic defect?
TLDR
Cell loss in the ventral tegmental area and the basal nucleus of Meynert suggest abnormalities in the dopaminergic and cholinergic innervation of the cerebral cortex, which makes the relative lack of senile changes of Alzheimer type a more plausible explanation for the dementia in this patient.

Electron microscopic structure of the “inclusion bodies” in Pick's disease
TLDR
Examination of the ultrastructure of these ‘bodies’ offered the opportunity to elucidate the nature of this specific histological alteration in Pick’s disease, and the artefactual problems posed by electron-microscopic examination of formalin-fixed tissue, the rarity of this disease prompted us to accept such technical limitations.
