Neurological disturbances associated with aphasia
A number of neurological disturbances are commonly encountered in patients with aphasia. These associated neurological disturbances include apraxia, agnosia, alexia, agraphia and Gerstmann syndrome. Although each of these disturbances may occur in isolation, they are most often observed as part of an aphasic disturbance. Where they do occur as part of an aphasia, the associated neurological disorders complicate the clinical features of the aphasia and therefore have important implications for the evaluation and treatment of aphasic patients.
