摘要

We present serial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans on a biopsy-verified case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). The initial MRI scan demonstrated increased T2 signal-intensity within the basal ganglia and thalami. Subsequent MRI scans demonstrated a thin cortex, increased T2 signals diffusely within the white matter including U-fibers, and hypointense T2 signals within the basal ganglia, and thalami. Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) study showed an absence of creatine, choline and N-acetylaspartate signals. By these characteristic findings, serial MRI and MRS studies may be helpful in differentiating CJD from other dementing illnesses.
