A subclass of sporadic Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (sCJD) characterized by onset with visual symptoms (Heidenhain variant) has been reported to belong to the MM1 or MV1 type according to Parchi's classification. The authors report a 65-year-old woman with MM2-cortical sCJD with slowly progressive visual disturbance as the initial symptom. Diffusion-weighted MRIs revealed hyperintensity in both occipital cortices at an early stage.
