Plate II, Fig. 2. — Longitudinal section through the left phrenic nerve of the same case to show the characteristic changes which take place in the myelin sheath. It will be seen that only certain of the fibres are affected; the sheath of the nerve is somewhat swollen, and occupied by fine black granules in parts. Where the degeneration is more advanced these fine granules have passed into larger fat globules.
Stained by Marchi’s method.
