Abstract

This study aimed to characterize the qualitative pattern of focal retrograde memory impairment shown by a post-encephalitic patient (AV). AV's memory deficit encompassed autobiographical data, public events and famous people. In a public events questionnaire, she demonstraed a smooth negative temporal gradient with good recollection of events thatoccurred about 15 years before the disease but poor memory of more recent events. Her visual input lexicon was unimpaired, as demonstrated by normal lexicality judgment for words and normal familiarity judgment for proper names, but she was poor in familiarity judgment for famous faces (prosopagnosia) and in accessing the meaning of words or specific information about people. The cerebral MRI demonstrated widespreadabnormal intensity areas encroaching upon the white matter of temporal, parietal and occipital lobes but sparing temporal poles and orbite-frontal cortex.
