[19] Minimal fatty changes in liver with portal infiltrates with lymphocytes were reported.[] Edema and focal areas of necrosis in the brain have been reported. The intestines, heart, kidneys, and other organs are unremarkable.[]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    infiltration), which was associated with strong LAT1/LAT2/CD98 expression.[] In conclusion, inflammatory brain lesions, such as cerebral toxoplasmosis, represent a potential pitfall of F-FET PET mimicking a brain tumor.[] […] histopathologic analysis demonstrated central nervous system toxoplasmosis with pronounced inflammatory reaction (reactive astrogliosis, microglia activation, macrophage, and T-lymphocyte[]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    The autopsy revealed atypical lymphocytes infiltrating the brain and meninges, which were positive for B-cell-associated antigens and EBV-encoded RNA, and thus EBV-associated[]

  • Demyelinating Disease

    The infiltrate in the plaques and surrounding regions of the brain consists of T cells (mostly CD4 , some CD8 ) and macrophages what do you see in older MS plaques?[] […] directed against components of myelin sheath - Prominence of chronic inflammatory cells within and around MS plaques; evidence that disease is initiated by CD4 T helper lymphocytes[]

  • Epilepsy

    MMP-9 also cleaves dystroglycan, a protein which fixes astrocytic feet to the basement membrane and allows for leukocytic infiltration into the brain’s parenchyma [ 57 ].[] Sjogren’s syndrome Sjogren’s syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disorder characterized by the lymphocyte infiltration of CD4 T cells, B cells, and plasma cells in exocrine[] The disorder is also associated with involvement in other organs, including the brain.[]

  • Rasmussen’s Encephalitis

    , with infiltration of T lymphocytes into the brain tissue.[] […] epilepsy, paralysis and cognitive problems, but the severity varies considerably. [1] Pathophysiology [ edit ] In Rasmussen’s encephalitis, there is chronic inflammation of the brain[]

  • Bronchial Adenocarcinoma

    We report the case of a patient with three different malignancies who had a brain metastasis of bronchial adenocarcinoma with infiltrates of CLL lymphocytes and who had been[]

  • Thyroid Lymphoma

    Fine needle aspiration cytology of the neck mass demonstrated a large amount of lymphocyte infiltration.[] Computerized tomography of the brain revealed a lacunar infarct in the posterior aspect of the left putamen.[]

  • Status Epilepticus

    Finally, a brain biopsy was done which revealed presence of lymphocytic infiltrate with SV40 inclusions in oligodendrocyte.[] We propose the affliction of an atypical virus affecting the retina and brain grey and white matter, presenting with NORSE in our patient.[]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Infiltration of CD4 lymphocytes into the brain contributes to neurodegeneration in a mouse model of Parkinson disease. J. Clin. Invest. 119, 182–192 (2009) 9.[]
