Background: Wallerian degeneration (WD) of bilateral middle cerebellar peduncles (MCPs) can occur following pontine infarction, but its characteristics have not yet been clarified because of the low incidence.
In contrast to Wallerian degeneration, which characterizes acute nerve injury, chronic nerve compression injuries have found associated with some of the changes discussed below.
The next stage, known as the subacute phase (more than 10 days, less than a year post-injury) is defined by tissue damage, and if healing is not progressing, Wallerian degeneration begins.
This was probably due to Wallerian degeneration and/or to arrested development of the corticospinal and corticobulbar tracts, as well as pontocerebellar connections, which were well demonstrated by neurofilament immunostaining (Figure 6, C and D).
Additionally, following injury in the peripheral nervous system (PNS), peripheral nerves undergo Wallerian degeneration and macrophages are recruited into the distal nerve pump [12].
This functional alteration could be associated with some degree of Wallerian degeneration of the internal white matter of the putamen.
In cases of cholesteatoma with facial palsy, where patient has presented late even after the clearance of cholesteatoma from the mastoid and nerve grafting did not give satisfactory results, probably due to ascending Wallerian degeneration.
The bird died, and postmortem findings included mild, nonsuppurative encephalitis and degenerative encephalopathy; lymphoplasmacytic myenteric ganglioneuritis (particularly of the proventriculus); and wallerian degeneration of the sciatic nerves.
2] participation in the process of early degradation of myelin in course of Wallerian degeneration of nerves in rats and mice [22,23] and in sciatic nerves of frogs [24].
These nerves also show Wallerian degeneration, which supports their role in the perpetuation of chronic pain syndrome.
