 We report two cases of geographical mislocation caused by cerebrovascular disease. One patient had reduplicative paramnesia in addition to geographical mislocation. Geographical mislocation was thought to be involved with the frontal lobe dysfunction of the minor hemisphere. In common with cases reported in previous literature, the patient who presented reduplicative paramnesia also exhibited geographical mislocation. The contribution of visual memory impairment was suggested for reduplicative paramnesia. As for the treatment of symptoms, if the patients' visuospatial ability is preserved, trying an overnight stay at home when their cognitive functions recover may be helpful for complete recovery from these symptoms.
