Although the evidence does not suggest that contaminated
ophthalmic instruments represent a risk of onward transmission of
sporadic CJD, this conclusion should be treated with caution
The occurrence of variant
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD)
and the probable causal link with
bovine spongiform encephalopathy
(BSE) in cattle have increased interest
in the search for possible environmental
sources of sporadic CJD (sCJD).
Presumed iatrogenic CJD is rare. Up to
the year 2000 there had been 267 cases
reported worldwide: three cases secondary
to human corneal grafting (one
confirmed, one probable, and one possible
case), 114 related to human dura
mater grafts, 139 related to human
growth hormone treatment, four related
to human pituitary gonadotrophin therapy,
and seven linked to neurosurgical
procedures or stereotactic EEG electrodes.
1 Because of the marked resistance
of the infectious agent of CJD to
conventional sterilisation techniques,
there is concern about the possibility of
transmission of infection via surgical
instruments in contact with infected
tissue, especially in neurosurgery or
ophthalmic surgery.
