Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0001816

NCI Thesaurus Code: C84542  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Mental or Behavioral Dysfunction

NCIt Definition: A rare disorder characterized by the lack of ability to recognize individuals, objects, shapes, sounds, or smells. There is no loss of memory. It is caused by neurological damage in the brain, specifically in the occipital or parietal lobes.

GARD Definition: Agnosia is characterized by an inability to recognize and identify objects and/or persons. Symptoms may vary, according to the area of the brain that is affected.  It can be limited to one sensory modality such as vision or hearing; for example, a person may have difficulty in recognizing an object as a cup or identifying a sound as a cough. Agnosia can result from strokes, traumatic brain injury, dementia, a tumor, developmental disorders, overexposure to environmental toxins (e.g., carbon monoxide poisoning), or other neurological conditions. Visual agnosia may also occur in association with other underlying disorders. People with agnosia may retain their cognitive abilities in other areas. Treatment of primary agnosia is symptomatic and supportive; when it is caused by an underlying disorder, treatment of the disorder may reduce symptoms and help prevent further brain damage. - this information is from GARD/ORDR/NCATS.

HPO Definition: Inability to recognize objects not because of sensory deficit but because of the inability to combine components of sensory impressions into a complete pattern. Thus, agnosia is a neurological condition which results in an inability to know, to name, to identify, and to extract meaning from visual, auditory, or tactile impressions. [HPO:probinson]

CSP Definition: loss of the ability to distinguish the significance of stimuli; may be auditory, visual, olfactory, tactile, or gustatory.

MSH Definition: Loss of the ability to comprehend the meaning or recognize the importance of various forms of stimulation that cannot be attributed to impairment of a primary sensory modality. Tactile agnosia is characterized by an inability to perceive the shape and nature of an object by touch alone, despite unimpaired sensation to light touch, position, and other primary sensory modalities.
