Ganglion cell tumours, including gangliogliomas and gangliocytomas, are low grade neoplasms with a mature neuronal component. Ganglion cells within these lesions occasionally exhibit neurodegenerative changes including neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) similar to those in Alzheimer's disease. The frequency and spectrum of degenerative pathology in these lesions have not been defined, nor has their relation to patient age or factors such as apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotype that predispose to… Expand
Abnormal tau deposition in neurons, but not in glial cells in the cerebral tissue surrounding arteriovenous malformation
TLDR
The present findings indicate that abnormal tau deposition can occur in neurons, but not in glial cells, of the affected cerebral cortex surrounding AVM. Expand
An immunohistochemical finding in glioneuronal lesions associated with epilepsy: The appearance of nestin‐positive, CD34‐positive and tau‐accumulating cells
TLDR
The assertion that increases in the numbers of these cells might contribute to promoting epilepsy is supported, as these immunopositive cells are valuable findings for the pathological identification of epileptogenic lesions. Expand
Desmoplastic ganglioglioma with meningiomatous and myofibroblastic components presenting with epilepsy
TLDR
The clinical history is that of an 18-year-old man who presented with epileptic seizures since the age of 12 years, the characteristic of which remained unchanged, suggesting the same lesion was the cause. Expand
Infantile tauopathies: Hemimegalencephaly; tuberous sclerosis complex; focal cortical dysplasia 2; ganglioglioma
TLDR
Four developmental disorders of the fetal and infant brain are presented, each of which exhibits up-regulation of tau, and Tauopathies must be considered in infantile neurological disease and no longer restricted to adult dementias. Expand
Review article Infantile tauopathies: Hemimegalencephaly; tuberous sclerosis complex; focal cortical dysplasia 2; ganglioglioma q
TLDR
Four developmental disorders of the fetal and infant brain are presented, each of which exhibits up-regulation of tau, and Tauopathies must be considered in infantile neurological disease and no longer restricted to adult dementias. Expand
Tau and TDP-43 proteinopathies: kindred pathologic cascades and genetic pleiotropy
TLDR
A complex but enlightening paradigm has emerged, wherein both Tau and TDP-43 proteinopathies are linked to numerous overlapping upstream influences, and both are associated with multiple downstream pathologically- and clinically-defined deleterious effects. Expand
Dentatorubral‐pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA) with a small ganglioglioma component containing neurofibrillary tangles and polyglutamine aggregation
TLDR
An autopsy case of a 72‐year‐old man with DRPLA with a small GG component harboring neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) and polyglutamine aggregates is reported, providing clues to elucidate the pathogenetic mechanisms that neuronal neoplasms may have to develop NFTs regardless of aging. Expand
Oxidative stress and hippocampal synaptic protein levels in elderly cognitively intact individuals with Alzheimer's disease pathology
TLDR
The data suggest that cognitively older subjects without dementia but with increased levels of AD-like pathology may represent a very early preclinical stage of AD. Expand
The Amygdala as a Locus of Pathologic Misfolding in Neurodegenerative Diseases
TLDR
Parts of amygdalar anatomy, connectivity, vasculature, and pathologic involvement in neurodegenerative diseases with supporting data from the University of Kentucky Alzheimer's Disease Center autopsy cohort are reviewed. Expand
Correlation of Alzheimer Disease Neuropathologic Changes With Cognitive Status: A Review of the Literature
TLDR
Evidence from many independent research centers strongly supports the existence of a specific disease, as defined by the presence of A&bgr; plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. Expand

Neuronal cytoskeletal changes are an early consequence of repetitive head injury
TLDR
It appears that repetitive head injury in young adults is initially associated with neocortical NFT formation in the absence of Aβ deposition, and the distribution of the tau pathology suggests that the pathogenesis of cytoskeletal abnormalities may involve damage to blood vessels or perivascular elements. Expand
Meningio‐angiomatosis: A Report of Six Cases with Special Reference to the Occurrence of Neurofibrillary Tangles
TLDR
Six cases of meningio-angiomatosis are reported, a disorder of the cerebral cortex of probable malformative origin frequently associated with neurofibromatosis and either asymptomatic or associated with a seizure disorder, and neurofibrillary tangles described in a variety of disorders are reported.

α-Synuclein is expressed in a variety of brain tumors showing neuronal differentiation
TLDR
The appearance of an α-synuclein-positive structure was not limited to neurodegenerative diseases, but could also be detected in neoplastic cells showing neuronal differentiation. Expand
Accumulation of abnormally phosphorylated τ precedes the formation of neurofibrillary tangles in Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
It is suggested that the accumulation of abnormally phosphorylated tau is one of the earliest cytoskeletal changes in the process of tangle formation and exposure of certain ubiquitin epitopes in the pathological fibers may reflect an unsuccessful attempt of proteolytic degradation. Expand

TLDR
A hamartomatous gangliocytoma was observed in the hypothalamus of a 54‐year‐old woman and the ultrastructural features of the neuroflbrillary changes were similar to those observed in Alzheimer's disease. Expand

IMMUNOCYTOCHEMISTRY OF NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES IN DEMENTIA PUGILISTICA AND ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE: EVIDENCE FOR COMMON GENESIS
TLDR
The paired helical filament antigens found in Alzheimer type neurofibrillary degeneration are present in the tangles of dementia pugilistica the pathogenesis of tangle formation in these conditions is likely to be the same; thus head injury may be a predisposing factor or environmental trigger for Alzheimer's disease. Expand
Tau in Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
This article discusses how changes in tau protein could lead to retraction of neuronal processes and thus cell death and argues that tau pathology, rather than beta-amyloid, might be the most reliable indicative factor for AD. Expand
Apolipoprotein E epsilon4 associated with chronic traumatic brain injury in boxing.
TLDR
Preliminary findings suggest that possession of an APOE epsilon4 allele may be associated with increased severity of chronic neurologic deficits in high-exposure boxers. Expand
