Sir: Palinopsia is an unusual phenomenon characterized by the recurrence of visual images after the stimulus object has been removed. In most cases of palinopsia, neuropathology has been identified. Infrequently, palinopsia has also been described in association with schizophrenia. We present the case of a man who suffered from psychosis and anxiety disorder, whose palinopsia responded to carbamazepine.
