Aphasia is always caused by an injury to the brain, most commonly from a stroke. However, aphasia may also be caused by brain injuries after head trauma, brain tumors or infections.

Aphasia affects more people than many other common conditions, including cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and muscular dystrophy.

About one-third of strokes (225,000) result in aphasia.

There are at least 2,000,000 people in the United States living with aphasia.
