Answer

See the list below:

  • The affected ganglia of the cranial nerve roots are swollen and inflamed.

  • The inflammatory reaction is chiefly of a lymphocytic nature, but a few polymorphonuclear leukocytes or plasma cells may also be present.

  • Some of the cells of the ganglia are swollen and others degenerated.
