Abstract

A rare case of a right-handed (on the Edinburgh Inventory) woman who developed aphasia at the clinical onset of a right hemisphere glioblastoma (GBM) is reported. She showed Wernicke aphasia and left spatial neglect. The integrity of the left hemisphere was assessed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). A few aspects of hemispheric specialization for language, praxias and spatial abilities are briefly discussed.
