Despite the fact that it is one of the main and most common neuropsychological complications of cerebral ictus, depression is often overlooked and at times even mistaken for poor motivation, above all in patients with marked speech disorders. Several factors (organic, psychological, social, etc.) contribute to depression and for this reason simple pharmacological treatment is often not sufficient. The paper discusses the most important data taken from the literature relating to this topic.
