This is a patient who presented to our OPD with findings of progressive dementia and vision loss. MRI showed cortical hyperintensity on DWI. EEG findings were also characteristic. Cerebral imaging is a vital part of the exclusion of other diagnosis & normal brain imaging, in the face of a rapidly progressive devasting encephalopathy, may lead to a consideration of CJD. MRI may show diffuse areas of increased cortical signal bilaterally on T2W and FLAIR images. The DWI demonstrates more accurately the hyperintense lesions.
