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.
