National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center Cases Examined1 as of January 8, 2014

please note, the many different faces of the TSE prion disease, and their names that change during that time, have changed again.

now sFFI is being referenced as sFI, a TSE prion disease, but you would have never known it by it's name.

I believe it was Gambetti et al that coined this term sporadic FFI, from some conspicuous sub-type of sporadic CJD possibly?

seems they could not tie it to a true FFI by diagnostic standards to date, so it was then termed a sFFI, confusing matters even worse ;

A subtype of sporadic prion disease mimicking fatal familial insomnia
