A 30-year-old man, following resection of the left inferior occipitotemporal region, was left with discrete residual deficits of right homonoymous hemianopsia, dyslexia, slow color naming, and verbal memory impairment. Neuropsychological examinations over a two year period focussed on his worst handicap, dyslexia, with results that are strikingly analogous to characteristics of one major subgroup of developmentally dyslexic children.
