CJD | Dementia Society of America

"This rare brain disorder usually occurs in people without risk factors. This condition may be due to an abnormal form of a protein. Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease [Dementia] sometimes may be inherited or caused by exposure to diseased brain or nervous system tissue.

 

Signs and symptoms of this fatal condition usually appear around age 60 and initially include problems with coordination, memory, thinking and vision. Symptoms worsen over time and may include the inability to move or talk, blindness, or infections."
