Alice in Wonderland syndrome

Alice in Wonderland Syndrome is a disorienting neuropsychological condition that causes the patients to have visual hallucinations in which they see objects around them distorted in size and shape. It may also make it seem like parts of their body are much bigger or smaller than expected, or that one body part is taller or shorter than they are in reality. Lewis Carroll, who wrote Alice in Wonderland is thought to have suffered from it while he wrote his novels. This syndrome is often associated with people who have migraine headaches and epilepsy.
