3). Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease (CJD; OMIM 123400) Clinical Features The commonest form of prion disease is CJD, which is usually sporadic, can be transmitted, and in the minority of cases is inherited due to PrP gene mutations. Age of onset is in late adult life, with peak onset between 60 and 65 years. CJD in individuals under the age of 40 is very rare. The clinical picture is of subacute progressive dementia with myoclonus. Twenty-five percent of patients have a prodrome of altered sleep patterns and appetite, and loss of weight and libido.
2 gives clinical clues to assist diagnosis of the major genetic forms of dementia.

Investigations For any new case of dementia there are a number of mandatory investigations: cranial imaging with CT or MRI, routine hematology and biochemistry, including thyroid function, vitamin B12, ESR and CRP, and syphilis serology.
4-fold, demonstrating the relationship of FS to other epilepsies. It should be noted that population studies were performed before the recognition of the autosomal dominant disorders described above. The above risks are greater in Japanese populations, where FS is more common. SYMPTOMATIC EPILEPSY ASSOCIATED WITH CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM INSULTS Symptomatic epilepsy can be defined as epilepsy that follows an injury to the brain known to be capable of causing epilepsy. Examples include significant head injury, CNS infection, stroke, brain tumor, and surgery.
