Abstract

Extract:

To the Editor: When an elderly patient has a first-time presentation of psychiatric symptoms, a physical cause should be suspected. In geriatric practice, these symptoms are often due to delirium, cognitive decline, or a mood disorder. The present case history illustrates the importance of further investigation when geriatric assessment alone cannot explain the symptoms sufficiently.
