Dysphasia without Repetition Disturbance
The features common to the transcortical dysphasias are preserved repetition and cortical damage at or beyond the periphery of the perisylvian language core. The zone of damage is, therefore, related to the more distal territory of the middle cerebral artery or to portions of its vascular border zone with anterior and/or posterior cerebral artery territories. In the case of transcortical motor dysphasia, the lesion may lie totally within the territory of the anterior cerebral artery.
