Abstract: Peduncular hallucinosis (PH) is a rare form of visual hallucination characterized by vivid, nonstereotypical visual images of people, animals, and plants of brief duration that are nonthreatening to the patient.
Visual hallucinations have been reported in a variety of pathological states, including Charles Bonnet Syndrome (visual hallucinations of the blind), migraine headache, Lewy body dementia, Parkinson's disease, narcolepsy, delirium tremens, schizophrenia, use of hallucinogenic drugs, and peduncular hallucinosis (Manford & Andermann, 1998).

The second or posterior lateral line count is from the midlateral peduncular portion to the base of the caudal fin (a single scale usually located posterior to the base of the caudal fin is included).
