Particular interest and experience in neurosurgical pathology of central nervous system combined with support from an array of histological, immunohistochemical and electron microscopic techniques provide a variety of capabilities for evaluating problem neurosurgical cases including:


  • Lower-grade glial neoplasms versus reactive gliosis 
  • Higher-grade glial neoplasms versus unusual metastatic tumors or pleomorphic xanthoastrocytomas
  • Gangliogliomas versus harmartomas or desmoplasmic astrocytomas
  • PML versus HIV encephalitis or toxoplasma encephalitis
  • Multiple sclerosis or related demyelinating diseases versus glial neoplasms
