    In aphasiology many inconsistencies exist in the definition and interpretation of aphasic syndromes. These syndromes are the co-occurrence of a set of symptoms. Thus, ambiguities in these clinical, aphasic categories are suited to be generalized to many problems of classification in medicine. In this paper the aphasia database is launched as a model for data mining in medicine. Nominal and topological data about 265 aphasic patients is collected in this database, which is a model for benchmarking different methods of soft computing.
