Abstract: We assess the diagnostic potential of the observed pathological Stokes V profiles that differ strongly from the customary, nearly antisymmetric two-lobed shape. In particular, we consider the formation of one-lobed Stokes V profiles using the results of an MHD simulation. We find that the majority of one-lobed profiles is produced in regions of weak horizontal field with significant cancellation caused by mixed polarity along the line of sight. A minority of one-lobed profiles originates close to strong magnetic field concentrations with strong gradients of velocity and magnetic field strength.
