Abstract

An alcoholic patient with a mainly right subcortical infarction developed contralateral left-sided neglect and then, in the context of alcohol withdrawal, unilateral hallucinations in the non-neglected right hemispace. It is hypothesized that an interruption of the striatocortical pathways could prevent the right hemisphere from representing appropriately internally produced stimuli.
