About this section


NINDS:42 Gerstmann's syndrome is a cognitive impairment that results from damage to a specific area of the brain -- the left parietal lobe in the region of the angular gyrus. It may occur after a stroke or in association with damage to the parietal lobe. It is characterized by four primary symptoms: a writing disability (agraphia or dysgraphia), a lack of understanding of the rules for calculation or arithmetic (acalculia or dyscalculia), an inability to distinguish right from left, and an inability to identify fingers (finger agnosia). The disorder should not be confused with , a type of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy.

MalaCards based summary: Gerstmann Syndrome, also known as developmental gerstmann's syndrome, is related to adenoma and thyroiditis, and has symptoms including agraphia, acalculia and finger agnosia. Affiliated tissues include left parietal lobe, parietal lobe and brain.

Disease Ontology:9 A nervous system disease that results from damage located in left parietal lobe, has symptom agraphia, has symptom acalculia, has symptom finger agnosia.
