PMID:  7762757     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Immunohistochemical ferritin staining was performed on pontine nuclei of the brains of 17 infants with pontosubicular neuron necrosis (PSN), aged 23 to 42 weeks of gestation. Ferritin-positive cells were increased in cases of karyorrhexis with spongy changes and gliosis, but not in those of selective karyorrhexis. Ferritin-positive cells were more increased in the cases with extensive karyorrhectic neurons. Iron may be released to the damaged pontine tissue as a catalyst and microglia may play an important role in the repair of the tissue.
