Abstract

This is a report of a patient with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The 67-year-old male first developed partial and secondary generalized tonic-clonic seizures. He was disoriented and could not perform calculations nor recall objects shown to him 5 minutes earlier. Magnetic resonance images revealed hyperintensities of white matter lesions in fluid-attenuated inversion recovery weighted image. We detected protein 14-3-3 in the cerebrospinal fluid.
