Abstract

Charles Bonnet syndrome is among one of the clinical conditions which is not very commonly encountered. Visual hallucinations generally found along with it are complex but interesting. Elderly persons with visual impairment are more prone todevelop this syndrome. But literature have shown that impairment of visual function might not be always accompanying with it. Here we are reporting a case of Charles Bonnet syndrome that had no gross visual abnormality.
