Movement disorders reveal Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease


Weller, M; Aguzzi, A (2009). Movement disorders reveal Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Nature Reviews. Neurology, 5(4):185-186.

Abstract

Human prion diseases are sometimes difficult to diagnose because few clinical features distinguish them reliably from other neurological disorders. A new study suggests that analysis of movement disorders might contribute to the clinical differentiation of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease from Alzheimer disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
