Resumo


Creutzfeldt and Jakob's disease (CJD) has its initial milestone in the publication issued 100 years ago that precipitated its better clinical-pathological and etiological understanding. Now, it is established that it belongs to the group of the prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies family. CJD is itself divided into several types, the most common being sporadic that is further subdivided according to the anatomoclinical expression, but mainly due to its aetiology regarding prionic protein or genotype.
