Síndroma de Alice no País das Maravilhas


Alucinações de distorção do espaço e do tempo.


Alice in Wonderland Syndrome: (Todd Syndrome, Depersonalization-Migraine Syndrome,
Derealization Syndrome) a syndrome of distorted time and place perception and body image, whereby
the patient has a feeling that the entire body or parts of it have been altered in shape or size
(metamorphosis) associated with hallucinations. Majority of the people have personal or family history
of migraine. Associated disorders may include apraxia (loss of ability to do routine tasks), agnosia
(loss of the ability to know familiar objects or persons), language disorders, feeling of dejavu or jamais
vu, dreamlike or trancelike states and delirium. In one report a woman stated she felt short and wide
as she walked, calling this the "tweedle-dum or tweedle-dee" feeling. Originally the symptom was
believed to be caused by psychotropic drugs but in recent cases there was no evidence of drug
toxicity.
