Abstract

A 46-year-old man with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease confirmed postmortem had a 16-year course of very slowly progressing incoordination and mental deterioration, suggesting Alzheimer's disease. The disease course transformed abruptly into a 7-week terminal phase of florid Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Dementing illnesses of unknown cause were present in the patient's paternal lineage.
