Apport des fluences catégorielles dans le diagnostic du mild cognitive impairment : revue systématique de littérature

Abstract : Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is defined as a transitional phase between normal aging and the onset of a neurodegenerative pathology. Early diagnosis of MCI patients is a critical public health issue in order to anticipate an appropriate treatment.
The aim of this systematic review was to determine whether the semantic fluency task is a relevant tool for early diagnosis of MCI, by comparing the scores obtained by MCI subjects to those of controls.
Through a rigorous selection process, fourteen articles published in the last ten years and identified on PubMed, PsycNET and Cochrane Library databases, were included in this study. The statistical analysis performed on RevMan5 has highlighted an effect size from the data collected in the fourteen studies (4675 participants, including 2446 MCI and 2229 controls). A significant difference in mean scores was found between MCI and control groups for the “animal” semantic fluency task.
This review confirmed the relevance of such a task in early diagnosis of MCI and investigated its value in relation to MMSE (Mini Mental State Examination), an almost systematically proposed test for the diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases. The semantic fluency task, quick and easy to administer, could be generalized whenever a mild neurocognitive disorder is suspected.
