Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a rare disease that causes fast deterioration of an affected person’s brain. As this condition worsens and damages your brain, it causes dementia-like symptoms.

With CJD, faulty proteins, known as prions, build up in your brain cells, damaging and destroying those cells. The condition is very severe, and its effects develop and worsen quickly. It’s ultimately fatal, and unfortunately, there’s no way to cure, treat or even slow down the progress of this disease.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is a rare condition that causes damage to a person’s brain. Once symptoms start, the condition worsens quickly, causing a sharp decline in overall health and abilities. Most people who develop it need constant medical care within weeks. About 70% of people with CJD don’t survive more than a year.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to cure, treat or even slow down CJD. Because this condition develops and worsens so quickly, loved ones of people with this disease may want to seek support or resources to help them deal with the effects of their loved one’s condition.
