Surgical biopsies of frontal, parietal and temporal regions of thirty two patients with clinical diagnosis of congenital hydrocephalus, brain trauma, tumours, and vascular anomalies were examined with the transmission electron microscope. The main goal was to study the submicroscopic alterations of somatodendritic, axonal, and synaptic plasma membranes, cytomembranes, and the cytoskeleton. In both, moderate and severe oedema, fragmentation of plasma membrane, enlargement and focal necrosis of… CONTINUE READING
