Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract The case of an 8-year-old girl who manifested cortical blindness and whose color drawings of faces and objects were without outlines is reported. Her birth was uneventful. When she was 10 months old, she fell down to the floor from a chair, resulting in a subarachnoidal hemorrhage. A repeat brain MRI revealed localized lesions in the visual cortices in the right and left hemispheres. As she grew older she was found to have visual imperceptions. She was found to have difficulties in learning visually the names of objects with form and letters, and in recognizing faces of her family. However, she was able to discriminate well the colors of faces and objects and learn easily the names of the objects with form by touching. She seemed to utilize subcortical vision for seeing colors of faces and objects.
