I discuss issues pertaining to the practice of neuropathology -- including nervous system tumors, neuroanatomy, neurodegenerative disease, muscle and nerve disorders, ophthalmologic pathology, neuro trivia, neuropathology gossip, job listings and anything else that might be of interest to a blue-collar neuropathologist.

Today I received a specimen labelled "left eye". It was the eyeball of a 57-year-old gentleman who had sustained trauma to that eye several months ago. The eye was blind and painful, so enucleation was performed. Grossly, there wasn't much to report other than opacity in about half of the cornea. Microscopically, I saw acute and chronic inflammation in the cornea, iris and ciliary body. There also appeared to be mild optic nerve atrophy. The changes were far too acute to allow time for the development of a cyclitic membrane.
