Spatial patterns of α-synuclein positive glial cytoplasmic inclusions in multiple system atrophy

Authors


Abstract

In cases of multiple system atrophy (MSA), glial cytoplasmic inclusions (GCI) were distributed randomly or present in large diffuse clusters (>1,600 μm in diameter) in most areas studied. These spatial patterns contrast with those reported for filamentous neuronal inclusions in the tauopathies and α-synucleinopathies. © 2003 Movement Disorder Society
