CJD: A Case Report

Abstract

Creuzfeldt-Jakob’s Disease (CJD) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder that is included among the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. The clinical features are those of a rapidly progressive dementia with myoclonic jerks culminating in death in less than one year. We intend to highlight the role of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a vital tool for the presumptive in vivo diagnosis, thereby obviating the need of histopathologic confirmation of the disease.
