Abstract
We describe a patient who suffered an infarct of the right medial temporal lobe, and developed visual illusions for body images, referred to as Alice in wonderland syndrome (AIWS). Although, these phenomena are usually seen in settings of migraine with aura or epilepsy, an association with strokes has not previously been described. The occurrence of AIWS in our patient, following an infarct of the right medial temporal lobe, provides support for this symptom having a biological and anatomical substrate. KeyWords:Alice in Wonderland Syndrome, Cerebral infarct, Medial temporal lobe
