Abstract

A patient with Parkinson's disease who had undergone bilateral adrenal to caudate implantation by stereotactic technique came to autopsy. The implantation was shown to have produced minimal trauma and to have been well placed. Minimal surviving adrenal medullary tissue remained in the implanted coil, and no outgrowth of tissue into the striatum occurred.
