It’s an unusual condition with a colorful name. Kids with Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (AIWS) see sudden distortions in objects they’re looking at. Things get very large, really tiny, or their own bodies appear to change size. It’s a lot like the main character in the Lewis Carroll story.
Like most kids, Sadie McKinney is full of imagination. She also has a neurological condition with a storybook name. However, her symptoms are very real.
CAUSES: Common causes for AIWS include migraines, headaches, hallucinogens and brain tumors. Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) can also be a cause of AIWS.
