    We investigated distribution of neuronal and glial inclusions in 30 brains obtained at autopsy from patients with Lewy bodies (LBs) disease, which was clinically diagnosed as Parkinson's disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), or pure autonomic failure (PAF). The cases were classified,...
