Abstract:

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a rare, progressive, fatal, degenerative disease of the central nervous system (CNS) with the pathological features of multifocal neuronal loss, gliosis, and parenchymal spongy change. A further pathological feature seen occasionally in sporadic CJD (sCJD), more commonly in scrapie and kuru, and invariably in some inherited forms of prion disease and vCJD is the presence of microscopic plaques of amyloidlike material. Abnormalities in the eponymic forms of inherited CJD, fatal familial insomnia (FFI) and GSS , include sleep disturbance and dysautonomia for FFI and ataxia and dementia for GSS. Iatrogenic forms that have sufficient numbers of cases to review include patients who have received cadaveric growth hormone or cadaveric dura mater. A consolidated table of clinical features found across the several forms of human prion disease is presented and provides a basis for the descriptions of the specific types of prion disorders. However, across all types of prion disorders, subacute dementia, ataxia, and psychiatric disorders are the triad of most common clinical features. Familial CJD , FFI, and GSS will be considered next, followed by transmission associated with ingestion of contaminated proteins which includes cannibalism and consumption of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)-contaminated beef. Although the risk of transmissibility in most health care settings is negligible, comprehensive institutionwide evaluation for risk and implementation of infection control guidelines for the human prion disorders are necessary.
