Alexia without agraphia
Alexia without agraphia is a dramatic disorder of higher visual function in which patients can still write but are unable to read. It may be either a disconnection syndrome or a selective word form visual agnosia. Alexia without agraphia is due to the language cortex being cut off from visual input and is usually associated with visual agnosia and prosopagnosia but may also occur in isolation.
