• A right-handed man with a global aphasia and a left hemiparesis was examined after a cerebrovascular accident. Three weeks later, oral language was only mildly impaired but writing disorders were still severe. At autopsy, there was an infarction of the territory supplied by the right middle cerebral artery. There was no lesion in the left hemisphere.
