A course of speech restoration in amnestic aphasia with literal agnosia and alexia

Cover Page

Abstract

Speech problems are the second most significant defect (after movement disorders) in patients suffering from stroke. According to stroke registry data from Research Center of Neurology RAMS, in the acute phase of stroke aphasia occurs in 36.9% of cases, and dysarthria in 13%. In this paper, a clinical example of amnestic aphasia syndrome with literal agnosia and alexia is presented, and foreground methods of correction directed to restoration of abnormal functions in this relatively rare form of speech disorders are discussed. Following medication therapy and daily logopedic training with the use of an adequate personal program, the patient clearly succeeded in alleviating  the literal agnosia and forming the letter image.
