Alice in Wonderland Syndrome
An 81-year-old female reported suffering from a severe headache on the night of July 24th, and she visited the internal medicine clinic the next morning. She was found to have bacteriuria with mild fever and started treatment with Augmentin and acetaminophen. She had a past medical history of diabetes mellitus that was controlled. She developed eyestrain, eye discomfort, and micropsia on the morning of July 26th. Everything was reported to look very thin, small, and unreal. For example, the patient described her own hands to have looked like chicken claws, and people around her to have looked distant and paper-thin.
