Summary: A patient had a 10-month history of isolated and progressive topographic disorientation prior to the development of generalized dementia that was associated with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). In addition to this possibly unique clinical presentation of CJD, this case illustrates the potential separability of the inability to recognize the purely spatial features of the environment from visual agnosia for specific structures
