Typical neuropathologic findings are Pick bodies, which are neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions that stain slightly basophilic on routine hematoxylin-eosin staining and are strongly argyrophilic after Bielschowsky or Bodian silver staining but do not stain with Gallyas silver stain.
These corticobasal bodies can be stained with Gallyas, are tau-4R immunoreactive, and are found mostly in the frontal and parietal cortex, in contrast to Pick bodies in Pick disease.
