Abstract

The "cytoplasmic body", herein described, represents another basic pathological reaction of the Z disk. It is characterized by (1) its origin in the Z disk, (2) a dense filamentous core, (3) a surrounding lighter halo, (4) randomly orientated thin and finer filaments in the halo, (5) lack of a tetragonal filamentous array regardless of the plane of the section, (6) an accompanying focal decrease of mitochrondria from the affected fibre regions, and (7) its restriction to white (type 2) fibres. These features are compared with those of other anomalies of the Z disk.
