After a recent report* about a 'probable variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease' case, the EUROCJD group replies in a public letter** why it considers the diagnosis 'unlikely'. The group states that 'the diagnosis of vCJD cannot be regarded as correct unless there is neuropathological verification of this diagnosis'.
