Disease classification WHO
F81.2 Gertmann's syndrome
ICD 10 classification'

A symptom complex is described as Gerstmann's syndrome, which was first described by Josef Gerstmann in 1924. It consists of:

  • Agraphy (Difficulties in writing, which are not due to motor disturbances or intelligence reductions)
  • Acalculia (Difficulty in calculating with normal intelligence)
  • Finger and toe agnosia (difficulty in naming and identifying your own fingers and toes) Left-right disorientation

The term angularis syndrome is often used synonymously. However, this is considered as a separate entity. The use of both terms is controversial.
