Aphasia in General Paralysis and the Conditions associated with it

  • Edward Mapother (a1)

Certain features of the speech defects commonly seen in general paralysis bear a resemblance to aphasia, e.g., inability to find required words, and the tendency to omit syllables or words without noticing it, or to transpose syllables or the vowels of successive words. More definite aphasia, however, may occur in general paralysis either as a transitory or lasting symptom. Though it may arise under a variety of conditions it is distinctly uncommon.
