Symptoms of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) are often vague and include the following:

  • Memory loss

  • Language disturbance (eg, difficulty in finding words)

  • Attention deficit (eg, difficulty in following or focusing on conversations)

  • Deterioration in visuospatial skills (eg, disorientation in familiar surroundings in the absence of motor and sensory conditions that would account for the complaint)
