Abstract:Given the rising number of older people with HIV (PWH) and the overlap in cognitive dysfunction profiles in HIV-associated Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) and its precursor, amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI), methods are needed to distinguish aMCI/AD from HAND. As an early indicator of AD, we examined whether olfactory dysfunction could help to distinguish between aMCI/AD and HAND among PWH.
