Abstract A short test of mental status encompassing about 5 shoet was administered to 93 consecutive neurologic outpatients without dementia, 67 outpatients with Alzheimer-type dementia, and 20 outpatients with dementia of miscellaneous causes. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was modestly but significantly better for the STMS compared with the MMSE for discriminating between diagnostic groups stable normal cognition vs prevalent MCI.

The differences between the 2 tests were modest, and the most conservative comparison of the STMS and the MMSE would be to say that they were very similar overall in their diagnostic accuracy. The patients were derived from 2 sources: By this strategy, the diagnostic groupings were based on future status; although we used the same instruments and procedures as at baseline, subjects were grouped according to clinical course.

The Short Test of Mental Status: Description and preliminary results. It covers a broad range of cognitive functions and uses a 4-word learning list with a delayed recall of approximately 3 minutes. We attempted to minimize these potential biases by using 2 different analytic strategies, both of which showed that the STMS was modestly superior to the MMSE. Another limitation in kkokmen data set was that our subjects were relatively well educated. J Am Geriatr Soc.

We grouped subjects according to their status at follow-up. Using an age-adjusted approach, sensitivity of the test to identifying dementia is Mayo Staus Proceedings62 4 Thus, in general, this easily administered test distinguishes demented from nondemented patients, but it should not be used as the sole means of diagnosing dementia.

Volunteers with and without cognitive complaints or disorders were recruited. Corresponding author and reprints: The introduction of calculations, verbal similarities, and fund of information in the STMS was intentional, because it was developed for use with a population with a high school education.
