Acquired Verbal Aphasia in a 7-year old Female: Case Report

There are no translations available.

From the abstract:   A case report is presented of a 7-year-old female patient with acquired verbal aphasia. Despite appropriate referral to specialists in pediatrics, audiology and speech and language pathology, the patient's verbal difficulties improved following the commencement of chiropractic care. Follow-up evaluations over a period of 18 months demonstrated that speech improvements had been maintained. The authors comment that the patient received DPT and MMR shots about 6 weeks prior to the onset of symptoms. The relationship between aphasia and vaccination damage has been noted by researchers in other writings.
