No, this would not be possible currently. If a CNS infection is suspected, however, an MRI and lumbar puncture could be helpful in terms of looking for evidence.
If Prions are causing the neurological problems, is there any way to treat them that you know of ? Thank You .
Prion diseases are usually rapidly progressive and uniformly fatal.
Unfortunately, there is no treatment for prion diseases. Fortunately, they are quite rare.
It is always important to rule out other possible, treatable causes.
