Alexia with agraphia has not been reported in multiple sclerosis (MS), while aphasia is rare. This report documents these findings in a woman with relapsing MS. Associated features included dysmnesia, achromatopsia and elements of Gerstmann's syndrome. Cranial CT showed a large contrast-enhancing area of demyelination in the left temporo-parietal region.
