Progression of pathological changes in the middle cerebellar peduncle by diffusion tensor imaging correlates with lesser motor gains after pontine infarction.
5 In MSA-P the degenerative changes predominantly affect the basal ganglia, particularly the putamen seen as hyperintense rim at the putaminal edge, atrophy and hypointensity of putaminal body on T2WI while in MSA-C changes predominantly affect infratentorial structures like pons and cerebellum, seen as atrophy and hyperintense signals in pons, cerebellum and middle cerebellar peduncles with pontine hyperintensity (hot cross bun sign) on axial image,4 which was seen in both of our patient's MRI.
Length and width of the peduncle and capitulum were taken under stereomicroscope with the help of an ocular micrometer.

To evaluate the influence of gum production in the nut and peduncle production, an additional portion with five replications (20 trees) was considered, wherein the trees were not explored regarding the gum extraction (Control).
However, the peduncle length ranged from 13, 75 [+ or -] 1,7cm (Waha) to 22 [+ or -] 2,082 cm (Bidi17) during 2011/2012 and ranged from 12, 14 [+ or -] 1,69cm (Bidi17) to 14, 17 [+ or -] 3, 38 cm (Waha) during 2012/2013.
