Mink encephalopathy as a subtype of Prion diseases

Prion diseases (medical condition): Various diseases caused by abnormal proteins (prions) in the brain.

Prion diseases (medical condition): Prions are abnormal proteins that attack the brain from inside. None of the human prion diseases are common and animal prion diseases are more common. The various transmissible spongiform encephalopathies in animals caused by prions include the famous "mad cow disease" (BSE), scrapies in sheep, chronic wasting disease of deer and elk, and various others. Human prion diseases include CJD, variant CJD (possibly linked to BSE), the obscure kuru (from brain cannibalism in New Guinea), Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker disease, and the bizarre fatal familial insomnia (where a person literally dies because they cannot fall asleep). See detailed discussion in article Prion Diseases.
