Abstract

Early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is often associated with better prognosis due to access to treatment, better forward planning and postponement of institutionalisation. An inaccurate diagnosis of dementia may be harmful because of adverse events and negative effect on quality of life. It is, therefore, essential to identify all features leading to inappropriate diagnosis. We describe a case of severe hearing loss (HL) mimicking the clinical features of early AD.
