Aphasia implies the loss or impairment of language caused by brain damage. The key to understanding the nature of aphasic symptoms is the neuro‐anatomical site of brain damage, and not the causative agent. However, because Herpes simplex virus (HSV) encephalitis infection usually affects the frontal and temporal lobes, subcortical structures and hippocampal tissue, the link between aphasia and HSV encephalitis is investigated in this article, based on the neuro‐anatomical site of brain damage… Expand

APHASIA – OVERVIEW AND TEACHING STRATEGIES
Aphasia is an amalgamation of a speech and language disorders mainly produced by damage to the brain. Most often is caused by a cerebral vascular accident (CVA), which is also known as a stroke,Expand

MRI in tick-borne encephalitis
TLDR
MRI revealed pronounced signal abnormalities in the basal ganglia and thalamus, without contrast enhancement, which coincide well with neuropathological studies of severe nerve cell degeneration with inflammatory cell infiltrates, neuronophagia and reactive astrocytosis in the deep grey matter.

TLDR
The polymerase chain reaction technique has proved highly effective in giving early, precise and specific HSE diagnosis, thus providing a helpful tool for the identification and treatment of this disease. Expand

TLDR
A case of developmental Gerstmann syndrome (DGS) that occurred in a normal, highly intelligent child with exceptional reading skills is reported, together with a review of the literature. Expand
Viral causes of the acute retinal necrosis syndrome
TLDR
Polymerase chain reaction techniques have enabled detection of very small amounts of viral DNA from intra-ocular fluid samples, which can help in both the diagnosis of atypical cases of retinitis and uveitis and directing treatment in cases of acute retinal necrosis. Expand

Japanese encephalitis (JE) is the commonest endemic encephalitis but there are very few studies on the radiological changes and these are based on relatively small number of patients. The presentExpand
Developmental Gerstmann's syndrome.
TLDR
Testing for the Gerstmann elements in learning-disabled children may identify otherwise undiagnosed cases of DGS and should be routinely employed in the neurologic examination. Expand
