BRAIN - Disseminated sclerosis

The specimen shows the anterior horns of the ventricles and, in the second slice, the posterior horns. Related to the left anterior horn there is a wedge-shaped greyish plaque and other smaller plaques can be seen related to the upper angle of the left horn. Posteriorly, there is scarring in relation to the ventricles with, on the left-hand side, one scar in the characteristic position at the lateral angle with the apex of the scar pointing towards the cortex.
