The first reported case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease from Nepal
Clinical Case Reports
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) can also be diagnosed in a resource-limited setting through good clinical analysis. The diagnosis of CJD should be considered in patients with rapidly evolving neurological signs associated with cognitive disturbances even in countries with limited available sophisticated tools and where CJD was never reported before.
