Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) refers to a stage of mild level of cognitive decline not sufficient to meet the criteria of dementia. MCI is commonly referred to as the transition between normal cognitive aging and dementia. Community studies have shown an annual progression rate from MCI to dementia of up to 15%.1 Therefore elderly with MCI should be identified and given close monitoring of the disease progression.
