The aim of this practical class is to relate the normal histology of the colon to its function, and to contrast this with the changes that occur in colonic neoplasia. The histopathology of colonic neoplasms will be correlated with common clinical features and the biological behaviour of the disease .0 cm. above the anal valves and extending cranially for 0.5 cm. and the ganglion cell density in this region was 17 per mm.2 One further measurement was made in these two specimens that is of some relevance to the distribution of ganglion cells and this was the maximum distance between adjacent ganglion cells in any one longitudinal plane of the section in the specific zones above the anal valves
Occasionally found in the GI tract - may form colonic polyp. Multiple ganglioneuromas may be due to multiple endocrine neoplasia IIb. Classification: In a grouping known as neuroblastic tumours which includes: Ganglioneuroma (benign). Ganglioneuroblastoma (intermediate). Neuroblastoma (aggressive). Gross. Solid. White. Firm. Well-circumscribed. May be nodular A histologic examination of the tissue would show a lack of ganglionic nerve cells. Diagnostic techniques involve anorectal manometry, barium enema, and rectal biopsy. The suction rectal biopsy is considered the current international gold standard in the diagnosis of Hirschsprung's disease. Radiologic findings may also assist with diagnosis MICROSCOPIC EXAMINATION: On well-oriented sections, ganglion cells are seen in small clusters in the spaces between the inner and outer layers of the muscularis propria, and in small clusters or in individual single cells in the submucosa usually found just beneath the muscularis mucosae WT specimens showed normal myenteric plexus ganglia throughout the examined colon. In contrast, distal colons of EdnrB KO animals were devoid of ganglia up to 10 mm from the anus. Ganglion cells were visible starting at 20-30 mm proximal to the anus. The density of ganglion cells seen by MPM and histology correlated well
We analyzed the histology and AchE staining of rectal biopsies from 10 patients with documented intestinal aganglionosis and 57 patients with ganglionic bowel. The results show that histologic identification of submucosal ganglion cells is reliable in excluding Hirschsprung's disease and that the absence of ganglion cells in an adequate suction.

Hirschsprung disease necessitates a demonstrable absence of sub-mucosal and myenteric ganglion cells from particular bowel seg-ments for a cogent diagnosis. Characteristic histology of Hirschsprung disease depicts a complete absence of ganglion cells with a conse-quent augmentation of structural density of the nerve plexus Distal colon wall specimens were harvested from three groups of patients. Group 1: patients with normal bowel function and with normal ganglion cells (n=10), Group 2: patients with severe constipations and with normal ganglion cells (n=12) and Group 3: patients with Hirschsprung's disease (colon aganglionosis n=20).

A sprinkling of ganglion cells present within the mucosa and elsewhere has caused some authors to refer to this process as ganglioneurofibromatosis. The demarcation between these 2 histologic subdivisions is sometimes arbitrary
According to the histopathological assessment of (submucosal Meissner and myenteric Auerback) ganglion cells in multiple levels H and E-stained serial sections of the distal colon and rectum; cases with absent ganglionic cells were considered HD, which comprised 40 cases out of the total 48 case enrolled in the present study A retinal ganglion cell distribution map has been prepared for the cresyl violet stained cat retina. It differs from previously published maps in revealing the visual streak to be more substantial and in showing a higher peak density of 9-10,000 ganglion cells/mm2 at the presumed visual pole. The map was used to obtain a minimum estimate of the. Number of ganglion cells in the myenteric plexus was counted between longitudinal and circular muscle layer of both colon and rectum of adult and neonate rats. Number of ganglion cells is expressed in term of cells per [mm.sup.2] and width of longitudinal muscle layer were also calculated and expressed in [micro]m
Figure 7. Isolated ganglion cells found in the submucosal plexus of the colon of the present case (A). In the control colon, one ganglion usually consists of at least a few ganglion cells grouped together (B and C) (Hematoxylin and Eosin staining, ×400). Discussion We diagnosed the cause of megacolon as hypogangliono Hirschsprung's disease (HD) is an anomaly characterized by the absence of myenteric and submucosal ganglion cells (GC) in the distal alimentary tract. Diagnosis of HD is made by the absence of GC and missing out on even a single ganglion cell can be very devastating. Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) histochemistry, done on frozen sections is said to be a very useful ancillary technique in the. Ganglioneuroma is a benign neuroectodermal tumor composed of ganglion and Schwann cells.There are no immature neuroblastic elements.The most common sites of involvement are along the distribution of sympathetic nervous system and include posterior mediastinum, retroperitoneum, and adrenal gland.Other sites include skin, pharynx, paratesticular region, and gastrointestinal tract

Histology of the resected colonic specimen (moderate-high power with 20 × objective and with image scales provided). a Normal bowel demonstrating myenteric plexus with ganglia cells present (area indicated by black arrows). b Segment of bowel with hypoganglionosis; no ganglion cells are evident Background: Hirschsprung's disease (HD) is characterized by a lack of ganglion cells in the myenteric and submucosal plexus, associated with increased numbers of acetyl cholinesterase (AChE) positive nerve fibres. In approximately 10% of patients with HD the entire colon will be affected; a condition known as Total Colonic Aganglionosis (TCA)
. The primary treatment for HD is surgical intervention with resection of the aganglionic bowel. The accurate identification of the aganglionic segment depends on the histologic evaluation of multiple biopsies to determine the absence of. (B) Histology findings: myenteric plexus lacking ganglion cells (hematoxylin and eosin staining, magnification 20×). The postoperative period was uneventful. Histological examination of the sigmoid colon showed chronic inflammation of the intestinal mucosa and a decreased number and the vacuolar degeneration of ganglion cells in the myenteric.
Superior ganglion of vagus nerve. Ganglia are aggregations of neuronal somata and are of varying form and size. They occur in the dorsal roots of spinal nerves, in the sensory roots of the trigeminal, facial, glossopharyngeal, vagal and vestibulocochlear cranial nerves as well as in autonomic nerves and in the enteric nervous system. Each ganglion is enclosed within a capsule of fibrous. The predominant cell type is the columnar absorptive cell. This cell has a thin striated border on its apical surface. In many respects, it resembles the enterocytes of the small intestine. Its main function is to absorb ions and water. However, some nutrients are also absorbed, especially in the proximal colon. There are also goblet cells The analysis of myenteric neurons is becoming increasingly important for the assessment of enteric nervous system injury and degeneration occurring in motor disorders of the gut. Limited information is presently available on the quantitative estimation of myenteric neurons and glial cells in paraffin-embedded colonic sections; additional data would be useful for diagnostic purposes
. There are both submucosal and myenteric ganglion cells (A: Hematoxylin & eosin stain, magnification: 4×. B: Synaptophysin stain, magnification: 4×) Auto text: Insert Hirschsprung Triage. In order to identify ganglion cells, one of two types of biopsies will be received:. Full Thickness Colorectal Wall Biopsies: In definitive pull through and/or re-sectioned cases in the operating room, the surgeon may send full thickness colorectal wall biopsies to establish the level of aganglionosis.The initial specimens are usually for frozen. Histopathology of the ascending colon polyp showed proliferation of spindle cells without ganglion cells in the lamina propria. There was strong and diffuse immunoreactivity to staining with antibody to S100 protein but not with antibodies to neurofilament protein (NFP), CD117 or smooth muscle actin (SMA)
The distal large bowel from the point of neuronal arrest to the anus is continuously aganglionic. It is a rare disorder (1:5000), with prevalence among males being four times that of females. Achalasia is a motor disorder of the esophagus characterized by decrease in ganglion cell density in the myenteric plexus. The cause of the lesion is unknown Histologic examination of the polyps revealed a hamartomatous collection of nerve ganglion and stromal cells in the lamina propria that ensheathed the overlying glands and formed a nodular configuration (Figure 2, A and B). The glands were elongated, but they did not possess crowded cells with hyperchromatic nuclei typically seen in.

Mucosal ganglioneuromas are proliferations of spindled cells with admixed plump ganglion cells that separate the colonic crypts. There is a layer of lamina propria just under the surface of the mucosa, and the overlying epithelium is typically intact, although sometimes the crypts can have a serrated architecture Histologic findings include the absence of ganglion cells in the myenteric plexus and hypertrophic extrinsic nerve fibers. Acetylcholinesterase staining and calretinin immunostaining may be. No ganglion cells were seen in the appendix of children with total colonic HD. Children with rectosigmoid HD were found, however, to have on average 3.0 ganglion cells per high-power field (hpf) (range 0.5-5.1) in the appendix and those with longer-segment disease had 2.2 cells/hpf (range 1.4-5.9) Other than Hirschsprung disease, however, the presence of ganglion cells does not specify one cause over another. For most cases, there is no indication for histology because Hirschsprung disease is not considered or excluded by normal manometric findings
Hirschsprung's disease is a congenital condition where nerve cells of the myenteric plexus are absent in the distal bowel and rectum. The myenteric plexus, also known as Auerbach's plexus, forms the enteric nervous system.It is the brain of the gut. This nerve plexus runs all the way along the bowel in the bowel wall, and is a complex web of neurones, ganglion cells, receptors, synapses. Hirschsprung disease is characterized by aganglionosis (absence of ganglion cells) in the distal colon and rectum. It is thought to either occur from a failure of neuroblasts in neural crest cells to migrate into bowel segments or degeneration of already migrated neuroblasts. It affects cells both in the myenteric and submucosal plexuses 4 Normal gastrointestinal function requires an intact enteric musculature and enteric nervous system. There is a group of disorders in which abnormalities of either enteric nerves or muscle, or both, lead to clinical features of intestinal obstruction in the absence of physical obstruction - chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction. These disorders may be congenital or acquired Spindle Cell Carcinoma of Colon and Rectum is a histological subtype of colorectal adenocarcinoma. The tumor is diagnosed under a microscope, on examination of the cancer cells by a pathologist. The subtype is denoted based on the predominant histologic pattern observed and is termed as a biphasic carcinom Colon. The colon is divided into four parts, the ascending, transverse, descending and sigmoid colon and is on average 1,5 meters long. General histology of gastro-intestinal tract (GI-tract) The gastrointestinal canal consists of the esophagus, stomach, Here is where the ganglion cells of the submucosal plexus of Meissner might be seen.
Pathologically, they are composed of ganglion cells, Schwann cells and fibrous tissue. They do not contain neuroblasts, intermediate cells, or mitotic figures and necrosis is not a feature 12 . Ganglioneuromas most commonly arise in the paravertebral sympathetic chains of the posterior mediastinum (41.5%) or retroperitoneum (37.5%) Background: Colonic diverticular disease (diverticulosis) is a common disorder in Western countries. Although its pathogenesis is probably multifactorial, motor abnormalities of the large bowel are thought to play an important role. However, little is known about the basic mechanism that may underlie abnormal colon motility in diverticulosis. Aims: To investigate the interstitial cells of.

In histology, food debris could be present in the lumen of the appendix. The mucosa contains simple columnar epithelium with few absorptive cells and very numerous goblet cells and enterocytes. The epithelium forms scattered crypts of Lieberkhun of irregular shape and varying lengths Superior ganglion of vagus nerve. Ganglia are aggregations of neuronal somata and are of varying form and size. They occur in the dorsal roots of spinal nerves, in the sensory roots of the trigeminal, facial, glossopharyngeal, vagal and vestibulocochlear cranial nerves as well as in autonomic nerves and in the enteric nervous system. Each ganglion is enclosed within a capsule of fibrous.  Maps of the TZ constructed from histological sections ( Figure 1) generally show an irregular interface between ganglionic and aganglionic bowel, such that ganglion cells in both. The hereditary syndromes of the gastrointestinal tract are classified as adenomatous or hamartomatous .As a part of the hamartomatous polyposes, ganglioneuroma (GN) of the gastrointestinal tract are rare tumors composed of ganglion cells, nerve fibers, and supporting cells of the enteric nervous system [1, 2].There are few reports in the literature The most recent Meier-Ruge modified criteria are based solely on the proportion of giant submucosal ganglia, defined as more than 8 ganglion cells per ganglion in a 15-μm-thick frozen section that has been stained histochemically for LDH to highlight mature and immature ganglion cells. 14 A ganglion cell is considered any part of a.

New Grossing Procedure Histologic slides feature serially sectioned contiguous sections along the entire length of the resected bowel, circumferential proximal and distal surgical margins with a full wall thickness an the presence or absence of ganglion cells (Figure 2). In practice, many surgeons biopsy at least two sites proximal to the dentate line. A conﬁdent diagnosis of Hirschsprung disease requires demonstration of lack of ganglion cells in the submucosal plexus. It is facilitated by the accompanying hypertrophy of submucosal nerves Surgery for Hirschsprung's disease is often complicated by post-operative bowel motility disorders. The impact of intestinal neural histology on the surgical outcome has been previously studied, but no information is available concerning the influence of the distribution of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) on these complications. These cells are considered to be pacemakers in the.
Ganglion cells are a potential mimic of CMV inclusions, either within ulcerated areas of the mucosa (although the mucosa rarely contains ganglion cells) (Figure 23.5) or in the underlying inflamed submucosa (where ganglion cells are usually present). The inflammatory changes of CMV may obscure the histological features of IBD The dorsal root ganglion contains the cell bodies of sensory neurons that bring information from the periphery to the spinal cord. These neurons are pseudounipolar and contain an axon-like process that bifurcates with one branch extending toward the periphery and the other branch heading toward the grey matter of the spinal cord.

Segmental dilatation of the colon is a rare disorder of colonic motility in children, often presenting with severe constipation in older infants, children, and occasionally adults. It may mimic the commoner Hirschsprung disease clinicoradiologically but differs in that the ganglion cell morphology and distribution are typically normal in the colon The innervation of the large bowel consists of 3 plexuses of ganglion cells—Auerbach's or myenteric plexus lying between the two layers of muscularis, Henle's plexus lying in the deep submucosa inner to circular muscle layer, and Meissner plexus that lies in the superficial mucosa just beneath the muscularis mucosae The presence of ganglion cells consistently correlated with calretinin-positive thin nerve fibrils in the lamina propria, muscularis mucosae and superficial submucosa.
