Hello guys. I've been wondering if age has an effect on the clinical progression of Sporadic CJD in young patients that differs from the course that older patients go through. Some articles that I have read seem to indicate that young people seem to have a longer clinical course that starts in a similar manner to Variant CJD (psychiatric symptoms being more prominent, though the VV1 phenotype results in Dementia). However, other articles seem to show younger individuals (29 years of age) lapsing into a vegetative state in just 2 weeks. So as a result, I thought I'd post this thread and ask the community here about the subject.
