Prosopometamorphopsia

Prosopometamorphopsia: a psychiatric condition that affects perception of faces.

A 52-year-old woman whose rare condition was reported in The Lancet suffered from hallucinations that caused her to see human faces as dragons.

The unidentified patient’s hallucinations were brought under control after she was prescribed rivastigmine, an anti-dementia medication.
