AIWS (Alice in Wonderland Syndrome) Correlation with Migraine

Choekyila Ladingpa | Sameerana Hammigi

Abstract: Alice in wonderland syndrome is an uncommon and intriguing neuropsychiatric condition characterized by unusual visual hallucinations. The term "Alice in Wonderland syndrome (AIWS) " was derived from Lewis Carroll's world-famous novel" Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, "in which the protagonist ?Alice" felt that the size and shape of her body varied in various settings. The pathophysiology of AIWS is still uncertain but there are several causes for this syndrome; however, EBV infection is the most prevalent cause in children, whereas migraine affects adults more frequently [1]. Many studies have found a strong link between migraine and AIWS. Patients with migraine who have AIWS exhibit aberrant perfusion in the medial temporal, hippocampus, temporo-occipital, or temporo-parieto-occipital areas. This review aims to find the correlation between migraine/aura and development of AIWS.
