We have presented a patient with a relatively rare syndrome of alexia without agraphia, which occurs as a consequence of vascular lesion in the left medial occipitotemporal gyrus and splenium of corpus callosum (Figures 1, 2 and 3) with abnormalities in the visual field (right sided homonymous hemianopsia), visual agnosia and anomia for colors, objects and numbers [2, 7], with all modalities of writing preserved.
Seven of our patients had type I lesions, where only the splenium of the corpus callosum was symmetrically involved.
An oval-shaped lesion was observed with T2 weighted imaging and fluid attenuated inversion recovery lining the midline of the corpus callosum splenium (mini-boomerang sign) (Figure 1).
Caudal displacement of the splenium was recognized in the same manner.
