Stroke is the leading cause of physical/functional disability of adult onset. The Mini-Test of Language for the Neurologist is intended to evaluate patients with cerebrovascular lesions according to speech and language disorders.
Evaluation of different functions of speech and language in patients with acute ischemic brain lesions (based on the use of a non-standardized battery of tests) is needed to detect which tests show a higher correlation with the presence, the side and site of brain injuries.
Neurolinguistic tests may predict the vascular territories involved in ischemic brain lesions with great accuracy. The tests which best served to discriminate the side of the brain injury were: repetition of words and sentences, ideomotor praxis and naming.
