- Negri bodies
Negri bodies are eosinophilic, sharply outlined, pathognomonic inclusion bodies (2–10 µm in diameter) found in the cytoplasm of certain nerve cells containing the virus of rabies, especially in Ammon's horn of the hippocampus. Often also found in the cerebellar cortex of postmortem brain samples of rabies victims.
