Alice in Wonderland-syndrome may be confused with anxiety

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V02190105

A diagnosis of Alice in Wonderland syndrome (AIWS) presumably associated to migraine was made, and the girl was successfully treated with lamotrigine.

AIWS is associated with epilepsy, migraine, certain infectious diseases and rarely cerebral tumours.
