Abstract

A case of Alzheimer's disease simulating Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease--We report here a case of 67-year old man with frank dementia accompanied by extrapyramidal syndrome and myoclonic jerks. The diagnosis of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease was suggested but the neuropathological examination revealed features most compatible with Alzheimer's disease. The "gray area" between both cerebral amyloidoses was discussed.
