In this chapter, we discuss the wide variety of patients who may attend a memory clinic or other health services presenting with memory symptoms but do not have dementia. These diagnoses may include a wide range of neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders, but in this chapter we will focus on other causes of memory symptoms which may be labelled ‘psychological’ or ‘functional’, or be more obviously part of an established psychiatric disorder . We describe the differential categorization recently posited by Stone et al. (2015), and consider important aspects of assessment and management in these cases.
