Two right-handed bilingual (English and Cantonese) Chinese patients were observed to have crossed aphasia. A preliminary study of a multiracial population with left hemiplegia did not show a higher incidence of aphasia in Chinese subjects. These two extremely rare cases are interesting examples of a particular type of cerebral organization of language.
