This case report describes the sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) of a 53-year-old man who initially complained about vertigo and dizziness. Within 18 weeks, he developed impaired memory, hemineglect, and sensory impairment of the left half of the body. A CSF tap was positive for 14-3-3 protein and showed increased tau protein, neuron-specific enolase (NSE), and the astroglial protein S-100 B. The EEG showed right temporal sharp waves without periodicity. Diffusion-weighted MRI revealed… CONTINUE READING
