Abstract

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a neurocognitive deterioration of at least one of the following six cognitive domains in humans: complex attention, executive function, learning and memory, language, perceptual‐motor, and social cognition. Patients with chronic kidney disease are at an increased risk of developing this disorder, with serious implications for the patient, family, and society. In this article, we aim to increase awareness of the disorder and summarize the existing evidence on the topic.
