A 38-year-old male car mechanic presented with a 2-month history of poor coordination, memory impairment and urinary incontinence. Over the previous year he had also become more withdrawn with reduced appetite and some weight loss and there had been uncharacteristic absences from work. His family doctor had diagnosed depression 3 months previously and treated him with an antidepressant. There was no significant past medical history or family history. He drank a moderate amount of alcohol and denied smoking or taking illegal drugs.
