H.S. Bhatoe, S. Rohatgi


Alexia without agraphia (also called posterior alexia or associative alexia) is a rare disturbance usually due to vascular etiology, but the syndrome may also be seen in CNS infections and tumors. Head injury has not been mentioned as one of the etiological factors. A 35 year old right handed female sustained head injury in a road traffic accident.
