Abstract

New-onset neuropsychiatric symptoms are common in the elderly. Whenever such symptoms emerge, a wide differential diagnosis needs to be considered, and a thorough evaluation is necessary to elucidate the cause. Whenever possible, treatments should be aimed at underlying causes, rather than simply targeting symptoms alone.
