Well-documented cases of crossed (transcortical sensory) aphasia, especially those with longitudinal evaluation, are rare. We report a case of crossed transcortical sensory aphasia following watershed infarcts in the right hemisphere, from the moment of the accident until 15 months afterward. The aphasia type, and the course of recovery, is a "mirror" representation of that seen in cases of uncrossed aphasia. Unfortunately, the data do not permit strong conclusions regarding the lateralization of language in association with praxis and visuospatial abilities. This underlines the need for more well-documented (case) studies to come to a better understanding of the mechanisms through which lateralization occurs.
