I recalled
the saddest patient I have encountered
in my medical career: a young man
with a brain tumor involving his com-
medication center, who was left with
the bizarre deficit of being able to voice
only random numbers. Seeing him
gnaw, , would ask, "What' s wrong?
Id something hurting?" I hoped he
would respond by pointing to the site
of his pain. But instead he pursed his
lips and a look of intense concentration .
overcame his face. After a minute or

If it took over his speech center, and he can't say anything but numbers, why not just give him something to write with?

I'm not exactly a scientist, but I would assume that the communication center (which is what the doctor said was effected) is probably bigger than the speech center and also encompasses the the ability to write.

Anything he tries to say comes out as a random number, so trying to match up a number to a letter wouldn't work. If there were a pattern to the numbers coming out then it probably would've been noticed.

I believe the reason why he didn't do it was because the patient wanted to actually overcome the weakness and see if by any means, through shear will power be able to actually communicate. Verbally.

Speech center is a really ****** way of saying the hemisphere of his brain that handles cognitive learning and understanding of language concepts.   
The thing is, if it were really that bad I don't understand how he can use the actual words for the numbers, instead of just holding up four fingers or banging his hand four times. Idk not a medical science major, maybe some doctorexplain can help.

brain injuries to that part are quite serious, a cop in chile got shot in the head and when he recovered he would sometimes say thinking instead of walking or switching some words with other words, i take the one in OP's post is much worse than this cop

very interesting question.
It turns out that in the brain the two areas most commonly associated with speech (Broca's area and Wernicke's area) also deal with writing! Sadly people with communication disorders often experience them in both written and oral communication (although there are of course always exceptions).
