Botulism is a neuroparalytic disease caused by the potent neurotoxin of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. We report a case of botulism associated with visual perception disorders as hallucinosis. Symptoms and signs may be confused with other neurological disorders and a careful history and specific neurophysiological, sierological and microbiological tests should be obtained when botulism is suspected.
