This atlas represents a compilation of illustrations and both gross and microscopic photographs of classic neuropathologic lesions and neuroanatomic structures. The authors have attempted to give the reader a brief photographic overview of the field of neuropathology. Indeed, many of the photographs are excellent, clearly demonstrating a pathologic process. The sections on congenital malformations, lipidoses, mucopolysaccharidoses, leukodystrophies, vascular lesions, normal anatomy of the spinal cord and brain, pathologic conditions affecting the cord, cerebral infarctions, infections, and intranuclear and intracytoplasmic bodies are especially well done. Occasionally, the magnification that was used was too low to clearly demonstrate the pathologic lesion, such as the microscopic photograph of the spinal cord illustrating loss of anterior horn cells.
