Abstract

Considerable controversy surrounds Gerstmann's syndrome, with some authors questioning its localizing significance, and others doubting its existence as a distinct entity. This literature is reviewed, and a case is presented of a young boy with Fragile X syndrome who showed all five symptoms of the developmental Gerstmann syndrome. He was one of a group of individuals found to be cytogenetically positive for Fragile X syndrome, who were observed to possess three or more of Gerstmann's symptons in the complete absence of aphasic disorder.
