- Plaut's hallucinosis
- The eponym Plaut's hallucinosis refers to the German psychiatrist Felix Plaut (1877-1940). It was conceptualized by Plaut in or shortly before 1913 as a form of *syphilitic hallucinosis occurring in the absence of any neurological signs. Prior to Plaut's conceptualization of this clinical syndrome, the term 'syphilitic madness' was employed.ReferencesPlaut, F. (1913). Über Halluzinosen der Syphilitiker.
