We presented two cases of CJD with the different clinical presentation; a 58-year-old woman who referred with amnesia, depression and a 59-year-old woman with ataxia as her chief complaint. Based on the findings and roled-out the other differential diagnosis, the CJD was confirmed. Both of them died before 12 months after diagnosis.
