Answer

Although no single feature of the general physical examination characterizes MCI, the following should be included in the overall assessment of the patient:

  • Evaluation of mental status

  • Examination for the presence of potential causative comorbid conditions

  • Examination for the presence of sensory and/or motor deficits as potential causes or exacerbating factors
