Abstract

A 70-year-old woman has been noticing increasing forgetfulness over the past 6 to 12 months. Although she has always had some difficulty recalling the names of acquaintances, she is now finding it difficult to keep track of appointments and recent telephone calls, but the process has been insidious. She lives independently in the community; she drives a car, pays her bills, and is normal in appearance. A mental status examination revealed slight difficulty on delayed recall of four words, but the results were otherwise normal. Does the patient have mild cognitive impairment? How should her case be managed?
