Focal EEG abnormalities in Heidenhain's variant of Jakob-Creutzfeldt disease.

Abstract

Serial EEGs obtained during a six-week period from a patient with Heidenhain's variant of Jakob-Creutzfeldt disease demonstrated periodic complexes confined to the occipital regions that at no time became generalized. The focal character of the discharges correlated with the site of maximal disease in the occipital cortex, suggesting that cortical damage is… (More)
