Alice in Wonderland-syndrom kan forveksles med angst

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftLetterForskningfagfællebedømt

This case report describes a seven-year-old girl with autism and nightly "anxiety" attacks. A diagnosis of Alice in Wonderland syndrome (AIWS) presumably associated to migraine was made, and the girl was successfully treated with lamotrigine. Effective treatment of the AIWS depends on correct diagnosis. Symptoms are bizarre and affect the senses of vision, sensation, touch and hearing, as well as one's own body image. AIWS is associated with epilepsy, migraine, certain infectious diseases and rarely cerebral tumours.
