Cognitive decline without dementia is common among older persons. A variety of clinical concepts have been introduced in the past 30 years, in order to describe these cognitive deficits arising in older persons. The most frequently used concept is Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). MCI is generally seen as a prodromal phase of Alzheimer disease (AD). Several concepts are described, with the neuropsychiatric features and predictors of conversion to dementia c.q. AD. Finally, consequences of preclinically diagnoses for health care are clarified.
