acute hallucinosis
   The term acute hallucinosis refers to a subtype of * hallucinosis characterized by a delusional and hallucinatory state of a limited duration not necessarily with an acute onset. The term was employed from about 1900 onwards in opposition to the expression * chronic hallucinosis, which refers to a delusional and hallucinatory state of a more protracted, often permanent nature. As a nosological category, acute hallucinosis is classified as a specific type of the *hallucinosic syndrome.
