Pure word blindness

AKA alexia without agraphia (rare) due to lesion in parieto-occipital lobe that interrupts connections between left angular gyrus and both occipital lobes. Patients can write but are unable to read what they’ve written, and frequently seem unconcerned about this. Often accompanied by loss of ability to name colors. Reading and naming numbers usually preserved.
