Abstract

A 49-year-old man developed ataxia, myoclonic jerks, cortical blindness, and dementia. In 3 1 2 months, he rapidly deteriorated and died. Clinical and autopsy diagnosis confirmed Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The eyes were examined and bilateral optic atrophy was noted. No other ocular changes were noted. Optic atrophy had not been noted before death.
