The Gerstmann syndrome, also known as angular gyrus syndrome, is a dominant hemisphere stroke syndrome consisting of 4 components:
- agraphia or dysgraphia
- acalculia or dyscalculia
- finger agnosia
- left-right disorientation
Pure Gerstmann syndrome is said to be without aphasia.
It is named after the American neuropsychiatrist Josef Gerstmann (1887 - 1969) also of the Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker syndrome fame.
