We report the mortality from sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in Cyprus for a 10-year surveillance period (1995-2004). In that time, 5 cases were identified out of a population of 749 000, giving an incidence of 0.7 cases per million population per year. Our sporadic incidence matches that expected according to global epidemiological surveillance. No cases of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease were found but 1 familial case was diagnosed.
