Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease is an incurable and invariably fatal degenerative brain disease. Sporadic and variant forms of the disease can be observed among patients. We report on a patient for calling attention to clinical features and laboratory findings of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease and the psychiatric prodromal symptoms. This case demonstrates that manic symptoms may also be a presenting symptom of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease and this diagnosis should be considered when there is rapid deterioration in cognition is observed with presence of psychiatric and neurological symptoms
