Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Slowly progressive aphasia without generalized dementia is considered as a degenerative disorder that can be differentiated of others well-known neurodegenerative disorders.

We present a case report of a patient with slowly progressive aphasia, characterized by a progressive anomia and without generalized dementia. The patient was evaluated in the last four years: a neuropsychological assessment, a neurological exploration and structural (MRI) and functional (SPECT) neuroimaging were performed.

CONCLUSION:

This case is interesting on account of a selective implication of the left temporal hemisphere is showed in the pathogenesis of this disorder.
