Abstract

A strictly right handed patient showed aphasia and left hemiplegia following a deep infarct of the right hemisphere. He had no personal or family history o{ left-handedness. His aphasia was persistent and global in nature without right limb apraxia which was tested by serial Modified Western Aphasia Battery There was a deep subcortical infarc tion of the territoy supplied by the right middle cerebral artery without any lesion or .perfusion defect in the left hemisphere on brain CT and SPECT. The frequency of persistent aphasia in the right hemispheric lesion in dextrals has been known to be very low and there was no reported case in Korea So we report a case of crossed aphasia in a dextral with review of literature.
