TITLE

Recovery from Aphasia and Lesion Size in the Temporal Lobe

ABSTRACT

We studied the factors influencing the prognosis of acquired aphasia in a series of 29 children with focal hemispheric lesions sustained after language acquisition. Twenty two children (76%) recovered completely from aphasia. Vascular and traumatic cases recovered better than those with encephalitis. Although many older children also recovered fully, all that did not recover were older than 7. In what concerns lesion size and site, determined by CT scan in 19 cases, the involvement of the postrolandic cortex and the extension of Wernicke’s area damage were associated with a poor outcome. This suggests that recovery from acquired aphasia is more dependent upon the intact areas the left hemisphere than upon language shift to the nondominant hemisphere.
