Dissociation between personal and extrapersonal neglect has rarely been observed in man. In this study we present a case of severe personal neglect in the absence of a deficit for extrapersonal space. An extensive neuropsychological assessment demostrates the absence of cognitive impairments in visuo-spatial processing and confirms the selective presence of a severe representational deficit of the left side of the body.
