Abstract

The first case of variant Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease (vCJD) has been reported in Italy (1). The case from Sicily was diagnosed in Italy and Great Britain on the basis of clinical and instrumental tests and tonsillar biopsy. The Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) has classified the case as probable, but since the patient is still alive, the ISS has not released any additional information. The surveillance and reporting of CJD has been mandatory in Italy since the beginning of 2002.
