Objective: Alert for chronic stimulant use as an etiological factor of a major neurocognitive disorder. Methods: Single-case study. Results: A 58-year-old woman, with a history of chronic daily stimulant use, was diagnosed with a major neurocognitive disorder with behavioral problems. Conclusion: This case highlights the possibility of chronic daily stimulant use resulting in a major neurocognitive disorder. Since the prevalence of long-lasting illicit stimulant use among older adults is rising, we suggest considering this as a possible etiological factor of neurocognitive disorders.
