Disorientation for place.

Abstract

The study of a patient with remarkable disorientation for place associated with an acute nondominant parietooccipital lesion raised the general question of a relationship between disorientation for place and topographical disorientation. The literature does not address this matter. The clinical findings of one case in particular are presented here in detail. Another six patients had been seen with a disproportionate disorientation for place; in each there was an acute insult to the nondominant hemisphere. Based on these cases, there is preliminary evidence of a possible relationship.
