  • LESION LOCALIZATION IN BROCAS APHASIA - IMPLICATIONS FROM BROCAS APHASIA WITHOUT HEMIPARESIS ARCHIVES OF NEUROLOGY Henderson, V. W. 1985; 42 (12): 1210-1212

    Abstract:

    The recent hypothesis that injury of the left precentral gyrus (PCG) is critical in causing Broca's aphasia implies that right hemiparesis is an inevitable accompaniment of Broca's aphasia and not merely a coincidental neighborhood sign of PCG damage. A right-handed man was evaluated for posttraumatic Broca's aphasia. The absence in this case of limb or central facial weakness strongly suggests that language impairments of Broca's aphasia need not be associated with PCG damage.
