Cases of the month/under your microscope

Between 1996 and 2020 every issue of Brain Pathology featured a selection of ‘Cases of the Month’ – these are cases that are of greater than normal clinical interest, have unusual symptoms and/or diagnostic findings, or involve rare diseases or conditions. They were collected and edited by Ronald L Hamilton, MD, Department of Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh and the full version of the cases can be found here. However, from 2021 interesting cases have been posted directly on the Brain Pathology website and rebadged as ‘Under your Microscope’ cases and can be found by clicking the ‘UYM’ link.


The International Society welcomes membership of any person (pathologist, clinician, scientist, veterinarian) who has a significant interest in Neuropathology.


The International Society of Neuropathology produces the journals Brain Pathology in partnership with the publishers, Wiley. In addition it has published a series of up to date books covering the pathology and genetics of Cerebrovascular Diseases, Developmental Neuropathology, Neurodegeneration. Peripheral Nerve Disorders and Skeletal Muscle Diseases. Further details of each of these publications are available in this section.
