Asensio-Sánchez,V.M.; Rodríguez-Delgado,B.; García-Herrero,E.; Cabo-Vaquera,V.; García-Loygorri,C.;
Archivos de la Sociedad Espa?ola de Oftalmología , 2007, DOI: 10.4321/S0365-66912007000500009
Abstract: case report: we describe a case of a 74-year-old woman who experienced visual hallucinations after ciprofloxacin administration, when she was also taking theophylline, which resolved on cessation of the ciprofloxacin. discussion: although uncommon, all ophthalmologists should be aware of this potential problem and be familiar with the adverse visual effects which may occur in patients simultaneously administered quinolones and theophylline.

Abstract: Objetivo/Métodos: Describir la presencia de alucinaciones visuales complejas en una mujer de 69 a os con degeneración macular bilateral y catarata unilateral. Tenía orientación y cognición normal y ningún síntoma psiquiátrico. Resultados/Conclusiones: Se presenta una paciente con sintomatología propia de un síndrome de Charles Bonnet. Varios procesos asociados con alucinaciones visuales pueden ser de relevancia para el oftalmólogo. Purpose/Methods: To report the occurrence of complex visual hallucinations in a 69-year-old female with bilateral age-related macular degeneration and unilateral cataract. Her orientation and cognition were normal and she showed no evidence of psychiatric symptoms. Results/Conclusions: A case of a patient who presented with visual symptoms characteristic of the Charles Bonnet syndrome is reported. Various conditions associated with visual hallucinations must be kept in mind by the ophthalmologist.

Abstract: La hipomagnesemia se ha relacionado con dosis acumuladas altas de cisplatino y su presentación clínica se caracteriza por alteraciones neuromusculares y cardiovasculares. Presentamos el caso de un paciente con cáncer avanzado que había recibido varias líneas de tratamiento de quimioterapia y recibía tratamiento analgésico opioide. Durante su estancia en el hospital presentó alucinaciones visuales y un intenso e inexplicado dolor en el hombro. La sintomatología revirtió tras la normalización de los niveles de magnesio en sangre, que eran bajos. Consideramos que los niveles séricos de magnesio deberían monitorizarse en los pacientes oncológicos con dolor inusual o síntomas neurológicos o psiquiátricos no explicables. Hypomagnesemia has been related to high accumulated doses of cisplatin, and its clinical presence is characterized by neuromuscular and cardiovascular alterations. We present the case of an advanced cancer patient who had received successive lines of chemotherapy and who was receiving opioid treatment for cancer pain. During his hospital stay, he experienced visual hallucinations and very intense, unexplained pain in one shoulder. Symptoms reverted with the normalization of his plasma magnesium levels, which were low. We consider that plasma magnesium levels should be monitored in oncology patients with neurological or psychiatric symptoms or with unusual pain.

The neuropsychology of hallucinations

Archives of Biological Sciences , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/abs1101043p
Abstract: Hallucinations are a psychopathological phenomenon with neuropsychological, neuroanatomical and pathophysiological correlates in specific brain areas. They can affect any of the senses, but auditory and visual hallucinations predominate. Verbal hallucinations reveal no gross organic lesions while visual hallucinations are connected to defined brain lesions. Functional neuroimaging shows impairments in modality specific sensory systems with the hyperactivity of the surrounding cerebral cortex. Disinhibition and expansion of the inner speech was noted with impaired internal monitoring in auditory verbal hallucinations. The subcortical areas and modal-specific associative cortex and cingulate cortex are essential for the occurrence of hallucinations.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Auditory Hallucinations

Abstract: Auditory hallucination is one of the most common symptoms in schizophrenia and the other psychotic disorders. The frequency of the auditory hallucinations and ensuing distress make the individual believe that these voices are not able to be controlled and to be coped. This situation can cause patients to be hopeless and desperate and lead to harm themselves or the others. Furthermore, the time they lose and preoccupation with these symptoms reduce their social and occupational functioning significantly. Auditory hallucinations are fundamentally mean thoughts causing to attribute internal stimulus to the external sources, thus they are the internal speech of the individual. These internal speeches are inaccurately interpreted due to dysfunctions in basic processes of self monitoring. Using cognitive behavioral techniques at this stage are thought to be effective in eliminating cognitive difficulties, understanding feelings, actions and somatic reactions which auditory hallucinations caused; and coping with these symptoms. The fundamental aim of this review was to clarify cognitive behavioral interventions intended for auditory hallucinations and to discuss its practice.

Abstract: Non-psychotic auditory hallucinations are described in children and adolescents in association with a range of psychopathological and social circumstances, including disorders of emotions and conduct, abuse and family dysfunction. A variety of phenomena and aetiological factors have been identified in scientific literature to explain the existence of non-psychotic auditory hallucinations. We present a series of twelve cases where auditory hallucinations were prominent. The objective of the discussion is to draw attention to the range of presentations, the influence of underlying psychosocial factors in symptom formation, the inadequacies of the main diagnostic classifications, the importance of diagnostic accuracy, the level of clinical skills required and the cultural factors influencing clinical presentation.

Abstract: Las quinolonas son antibacterianos eficaces contra gérmenes gramnegativos y especialmente útiles para eliminar infecciones de las vías urinarias u otras localizaciones, así como también para tratar a pacientes con enfermedades de transmisión sexual. Al respecto se realizó un estudio sobre el uso y abuso del ciprofloxacino, por constituir un antimicrobiano comúnmente utilizado de forma inadecuada e indiscriminada. Quinolones are effective antibacterials against gram-negative germs. In addition, they are especially useful to eliminate infections of the urine ducts and other regions, as well as to treat patients with sexually transmitted diseases. A study about the ciprofloxacin use and overuse was carried out because it is an antimicrobial which is commonly used in an inappropriately and indiscriminately way.
