Thus, the issue of ECF impairment has implications for dementia case-finding that go well beyond ‘MCI’. In contrast to memory or other non-executive cognitive impairments, the presence of ECF impairment suggests disability, and thus ‘dementia’ as well. The recognition of ECF impairment as being ‘essential’ to dementia would have far-ranging consequences for the epidemiology of that condition.

Parnetti L, Lanari A, Amici S, et al. CSF phosphorylated tau is a possible marker for discriminating Alzheimer’s disease from dementia with Lewy bodies.

Moreover, the demonstrable functional impairment associated with executive dyscontrol argues against the idea of ‘mild’ executive impairment. 52 Very few studies have specifically tested the prevalence of ECF impairment in the community. 63 The label ‘MCI’ obscures their lack of association with AD pathology, misleads us towards inappropriate therapeutic strategies, and blinds us to their disabling cognitive declines. CONCLUSION ECF impairment is common in ‘non-demented’ populations, and may also contribute significantly to the dementia risk of ‘amnestic’ MCI.
