This error is kind of like explaining that the flu is caused by a brick. There is only one statement about CJD in the book, and it is dead wrong. And wrong in so many ways but I don't have time to thoroughly rant, we are having a quiz next week. Anyway CJD is of a unique disease type; those caused by infectious proteins - prions - in 1997 the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Stanley Prusiner for discovering prions.
I don't believe this error is necessarily the chapter author's fault-I suspect it is a result of sloppy editing. Note-"Understanding Pathophysiology" is a lighter, butchered version of "Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children (Pathophysiology the Biologic Basis) - the description of CJD by the same chapter author is correct in the latter book. Overall "Understanding Pathophysiology" is painful to read, to me it's a hacked to death version of "Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children".
My apology for this ranting review. Please look up prions and dementia. (But not in "Understanding Pathophysiology"!!)
This book is difficult to follow - too much detail on biochemistry, yet less than adequate descriptions on disease.
Look up hypoglycaemia & you'll be chopping & changing between chapters, none the wiser at the end of it!
I preferred the much cheaper & easier to carry Merk Manual.
