There are many globoid cells visible in this H&E-stained specimen of brain from a person who had Krabbe disease. Krabbe disease is also called globoid cell leukodystrophy because these cells are a hallmark feature of the disease. The unnecessarily large green arrow points to one of the globoid cells.
