Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease manifests clinically as a form of presenile dementia. It is now known to be caused by a transmissible agent, probably a “slow virus.” Rapidly progressive atrophic changes on serial computed tomograms of the brain are highly suggestive of the disease. Neuroradiographic and pathological findings in two cases of Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease are documented.
