M.T. is an eighty-year-old Asian male brought to the geriatrics clinic by his daughter because he is becoming more forgetful. The daughter explains that the patient often does not even recognize his own grandson. When asked, however, the patient denies memory impairment. The daughter states that her father has been having trouble for almost four years, now. She said she did not realize how much her father had changed until she watched a home video of her father with his grandson six years ago. “His personality has even seemed to have changed,” said the daughter.
