Creutzfeldt–Jacob disease (CJD) is a rare neurodegenerative disease with a rapid progressive course. Clinically, general symptoms include progressive dementia, ataxia, myoclonus and akinetic mutism, in addition to other presentations such as alien hand. Here, we describe a patient with symptoms resembling corticobasal degeneration (CBD) who was diagnosed with CJD at follow up.
