AIDS-Related Dementia: a Case Report of Rapid Cognitive Decline
Morgan M K~~Clark M E~~Hartman W L
Little is known psychometrically about the pattern of cognitive decline associated with AIDS-related dementia. Pre- & posttest results are presented to illustrate a case example of rapid cognitive decline. Increased psychometric assessment is recommended with additional examination of inconsistent results, which may be dismissed mistakenly as related to psychiatric symptoms. Implications for clinical practice & the role of the psychologist are discussed.
