Alice in Wonderland Syndrome associated with a temporo-parietal cavernoma
- 696 Downloads
Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (AIWS) is characterized by a rare constellation of perceptual disturbances including distorted body image, metamorphopsia, and visual hallucinations. In this report, we relate a unique case of AIWS in a woman with a right temporo-parietal cavernoma. AIWS in this patient may be secondary to epileptiform activity associated with the cavernoma and improved with anti-epileptic treatment.
