Abstract:

We report a rare case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease whose complaints started after a few weeks’ mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Prion diseases are neurodegenerative diseases which have long incubation periods. After clinical symptoms appear, it progresses rapidly to death. Beside clinical symptoms, EEG, Brain MRI and Protein 14-3-3 pozitivity support to diagnose. There is no effective treatment. In this paper, we present a case admitted to our clinic with rapidly progressive cognitive impairment after mRNA COVID-19 vaccine along with protein 14.3.3 positivity.
