|Spanish term or phrase: fenomenos de extincion visual y sensitivo|
|a la exploracion presenta fenomeno de extincion visual u sensitivo izquierdos.|
|visual and tactile extinction" (or maybe visual and auditory?)|
I have a doubt about this one - partucularly about the "y" - since extinction (as well as neglect and other neuropsychological disorders) can occur in one or more "sensory" modalities ("visual", auditory, tactile, etc.)
I wonder if "sensitivo" in spanish may stand for one of these modalities, and think the sentence may well translate into "visual and tactile extinction" (or maybe visual and auditory?)

of course, by saying \"occur in one or more \"sensory\" modalities (\"visual\", auditory, tactile, etc.)\" I meant to educately point out that - if the author is speaking not of two different modalities but of visual extinction and of the overall phenomenon of sensory extinction (which encompasses the visual one) the word would be sensory and not sensitive (that is: \"visual and sensory extinction\")

visual and sensory exinction phenomena
"Phenomena" (because it is plural) comes last because in English phrases-tructure (X-bar) is oriented that way.
