Acalculia refers to impairments in mathematical abilities in patients with brain damage. It is most often caused by a stroke, tumor, or trauma and is usually present in dementia. A major distinction can be established between primary (anarithmetia) and secondary (aphasic acalculia, alexic acalculia, agraphic acalculia, frontal acalculia, and spatial acalculia) acalculia.
