Résumé : The traditional description of the clinical picture of acquired childhood aphasia (ACA) claims that ACA is invariably nonfluent, that recovery of language disorder is rapid and complete, and that ACA commonly occurs after right hemisphere damage. However, since the late 1970s the publication of several case studies has led to reject this longstanding standard doctrine. This review, which concerns the revised insights into ACA, aims at making an inventory of the recently described aphasic symptomatologies and neuroradiological data.
