A case study is reported of a female patient (JAH), who following a left middle cerebral artery infarct, presented with the cardinal symptoms of deep dyslexia and deep dysphasia (semantic errors when reading and repeating words aloud, respectively). Detailed assessment revealed impaired performance across modalities for many tasks, but particularly those tasks that depend on an intact store of semantic knowledge. Her acquired dyslexia is best characterised as deep dyslexia of a central sub-type.
