You are right, you don't see these "every day", but they do occur. I have a small collection of photomicrographs of binucleate neurons from clearly non-neoplastic tissues, including hippocampus, neocortex, substantia nigra, and cerebellum, which I accumulated over the years because of my interest in gangliogliomas. Thanks for showing this one.
