Among the many and varied forms of aphasia it is a rare occurrence to find a case of pure type; the greater number present symptomic pictures indicative of two or more affections. Furthermore, in a case of mixed type, the symptoms of sensory aphasia which accompany the motor aphasia obscure the picture, making it impossible for the observer to obtain a true estimate of the patient's intellectual capacity. The case of motor aphasia herein presented is therefore of double interest: first, because the patient's ability to acquire speech comprehension and spontaneous speech (oral and written) reveal a superior intellect. The dearth of literature on the subject of motor aphasia gives additional value to the study.
