Mr. Akkad is a 76 year old Iranian male who is brought to your office by his eldest son for â€œstrange behavior.â€ Mr. Akkad was seen by his family physician who ruled out any organic basis for Mr. Akkadâ€™s behavior. All laboratory and diagnostic imaging tests (including CT-scan of the head) were normal.
According to his son, he has been demonstrating some strange thoughts and behaviors for the past two years, but things seem to be getting worse. Per the clientâ€™s son, the family noticed that Mr. Akkadâ€™s personality began to change a few years ago. He began to lose interest in religious activities with the family and became more â€œcriticalâ€ of everyone. They also noticed that things he used to take seriously had become a source of â€œamusementâ€ and â€œridicule.â€
Over the course of the past two years, the family has noticed that Mr. Akkad has been forgetting things. His son also reports that sometimes he has difficult â€œfinding the right wordsâ€ in a conversation and then will shift to an entirely different line of conversation.
