Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a degenerative process of the brain, induced by novel infectious agent or prion, and is usually characterized by a rapidly progressive dementia in association with myoclonus. However different patterns of disease presentation have been identified. The authors describe three probable cases of CJD. None of them had positive family history or any known modes of iatrogenic transmission. Interestingly, all the cases presented like a stroke. This is the first series of CJD cases from this part of country.
