The association between “Alice in Wonderland” Syndrome (AWS) and infectious mononucleosis (IM) has been previously described in three patients. We describe two additional cases in children, where in one case, the visual symptoms of AWS appeared during the course of active IM and in the second, 2 weeks following a clinically mild, but serologically proven attack.
