 ===== Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (Todd Syndrome) ===== ===== Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (Todd Syndrome) =====
 Alice in Wonderland syndrome (AIWS) or Todd syndrome is a neurologic condition in which a patient'​s sense of body image, space, and/or time are distorted. Sufferers may experience micropsia or Lilliputian hallucinations,​ macropsia, or other sensorial distortions,​ including altered sense of velocity. AIWS is a result of change in perception as opposed to the eyes themselves malfunctioning. The most prominent and often most disturbing symptom is that of altered body image: the sufferer will find that he is confused as to the size and shape of parts of (or all of) his/her body.  Alice in Wonderland syndrome (AIWS) or Todd syndrome is a neurologic condition in which a patient'​s sense of body image, space, and/or time are distorted.
