Figure 2 :Transverse sections of sural nerve biopsy stained for myelin (Kulchitsky Pal) and axons (neurofilament immunostain) shows predominant myelin loss (a) with relative preservation of axons (b) in a case with relapsing remitting form; in contrast, a case with the progressive form shows greater degree of axonal dropout (d) than demyelination (c). [a, c: Kulchitsky-Pal × Obj.10; b, d: Neurofilament immunostain × Obj.10]
