This could occur if a patient has a condition
called "pure alexia." Alexia means an inability
to read after some damage to the brain. Alexia
sometimes occurs alongside a condition known as
agraphia, which is an inability to write.
Sometimes, however, a patient can experience
alexia without agraphia, or pure alexia. This
means that they are still able to write down
words correctly, but they cannot read them.
