Gerstmann Syndrome

Published on Apr 17, 2013

Testing for the four features of Gerstmann Syndrome in this patient with two separate left sided strokes (left frontoparietal ischaemic stroke followed by left posterior parietal haemorrhagic stroke). He exhibits (i) acalculia, (ii) agraphia, (iii) left-right disorientation, and (iv) finger agnosia. Complicating the issue is his obvious nonfluent aphasia (expressive dysphasia) with paraphasic errors (replacing words with associated words (e.g. says 'fork' instead of 'spoon')) and some comprehension issues.

Here I will concentrate on testing for Gerstmann Syndrome specifically.

I will, however, test for his expressive and receptive language functions first so I can then reliably deduce from the findings of the test for Gerstmann syndrome.

1. Acalculia 0:52
 2. Agraphia 1:20
 3. Left-Right disorientation 1:56
 4. Finger agnosia 2:31

Sorry for the bad audio quality.

Neuro Exam ; Mental Status : Anatomy Parietal Lobes

Parietal Lobes

The parietal lobes are important for perception and interpretation of sensory information especially somatosensory information. The non-dominant parietal lobe is particularly important for visual-spatial function. The dominant parietal lobe is important for praxis, which is the formation of the idea of a complex purposeful motor act while the frontal lobes are important for the execution of the act. The Gerstmann syndrome, which consists of the constellation of acalculia, finger agnosia, right-left confusion and agraphia, occurs with damage to the dominant inferior parietal lobe. Clinical tests for parietal lobe function include tests for agnosia (such as inability to identify objects by tactile exploration), apraxia (inability to perform purposeful motor acts on command), constructional apraxia (inability to draw objects which require use of visual spatial organization) and testing for elements of Gerstmann's syndrome.
