Burçak Çakır Peköz, Özlem Alkan, Semih Giray, Şenay Demir, Naime Altınkaya.

Abstract
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a rare dementing disease and is thought to caused by a prion. It is characterized by rapidly progressive dementia, ataxia, myoclonus, akinetic mutism and eventual death. Brain biopsy or autopsy is required for a definitive diagnosis of CJD. Diffusion-weighted imaging became an important tool for early diagnosis of CJD because of the high sensitivity. We present 59-year-old female patient diagnosed as sporadic CJD with typical MR imagings.

Key words: Basal ganglia, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Diffusion MR imaging
