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.
