Abstract

A subclass of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) characterized by onset with visual symptoms (Heidenhain variant) has been reported to belong to the MM1 or MV1 type according to Parchi's classification. The authors report a 65-year-old woman with MM2-cortical sCJD with slowly progressive visual disturbance as the initial symptom. Diffusion-weighted MRIs revealed hyperintensity in both occipital cortices at an early stage.
