Two new cases of alexia without agraphia are presented. Pertinent clinical findings, anatomy, pathophysiology and differential diagnoses are reviewed. The importance of carefully examining the inferior portion of the left side of the splenium of the corpus callosum on CT and/or MR scans in patients who present with this clinical syndrome is stressed.

Acalculia is an acquired disorder in calculation abilities, usually associated with left posterior parietal damage. Two types of acalculic disorders are usually distinguished: (1) primary acalculia or anarithmetia, where the patient presents a loss of numerical concepts (difficulties are observed both in oral and written calculations), and (2) secondary acalculia due to a different disturbance in cognition and affecting mathematical abilities. Secondary acalculias are associated with aphasia, alexia, agraphia, executive function disorders, or visuospatial difficulties. This paper is a proposal for clinical intervention to rehabilitation of acquired primary and secondary acalculias.

Rosselli and Ardila [41] described the rehabilitation treatment of a 58-year-old woman who presented alexia, agraphia, and spatial acalculia secondary to a right hemisphere vascular pathology. The rehabilitation program was based on the recovery of spatial neglect and associated spatial difficulties. Initially, the patient could normally perform oral arithmetic operations but was unable to make in written because of the spatial difficulties. In a written mathematical test including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, her score was 0/20. The left unilateral spatial neglect, the inadequate mix of procedures, and the impossibility to organize and follow the numbers inside the columns to add them up were very evident. After eight months of therapy, a significant recovery was observed and she was able to perform basic arithmetical operations in writing.
