Abstract

Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD) is a rare prion disease characterized by
a spongiform encephalopathy in humans. Although the characteristic triad
of myoclonus, dementia, and periodic EEG activity is easy to recognize,
unusual manifestations of the disease may be challenging and create a
diagnostic dilemma. We report a case of CJD that occurred in a
26-year-old patient who presented with a receptive (Wernicke’s) aphasia
secondary to nonconvulsive status epilepticus.

Keywords: Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease; Status epilepticus; Wernicke’s aphasia
