Abstract

Article abstract

Five patients with dysarthria-clumsy hand syndrome developed micrographia. Four had lacunar infarctions involving the putamen or the genu of the internal capsule; the fifth patient had a small hemorrhage in the putamen. Micrographia may be a sign of focal cerebral disease, and basal ganglia dysfunction may be involved in the supratentorial dysarthria-clumsy hand syndrome.
