We report on a patient with pure agraphia due to perioperative stroke following left carotid endarterectomy. Her writing was illegible, slow and laborious, with impaired copying. Her oral spelling skills were normal. There was no limb apraxia. The CT brain scan revealed two hypodense areas--one anterior, the other posterior--at the level of the left centrum semi-ovale.
