Alzheimer disease, microscopic: On H&E, typical features of Alzheimer disease are neuron loss, gliosis (circle) and inclusion formation. An extracellular plaque (yellow arrowhead) and intraneuronal (cytoplasmic) neurofibrillary tangle (black arrow) are both present in this image. Silver stains (e.g. Bielschowsky) allow one to more easily view plaques and NFTs can be subtle on H&E. Immunohistochemistry for phosphorylated tau protein, a component of NFTs, and beta-amyloid protein, a component of plaques, may also be helpful. This image is from the amygdala of a 55-year-old male with Down syndrome.
