Abstract

Mirror writing is "that variety of script which runs in an opposite direction to the normal, the individual letters also being reversed" [1]. Mirror writing may be transient or long lasting, and may affect single letters or characters, whole words or sentences. Although mirror writing occurs both spontaneously and pathologically, it is generally associated with cerebrovascular lesions in the dominant hemisphere [2].
