We discuss a case of a 67-year-old male with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) that was initially suspected as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) or another type of encephalopathy, because he showed rapidly progressive deterioration, myoclonus, gait disturbance and a decline in activities of daily living. The present study describes a clinically atypical case with probable DLB and reviews similar cases in the literature, and we propose a rapidly progressive clinical subtype of DLB.
