Alcoholic hallucinosis: a psychiatric enigma--1. The development of an idea - Glass IB.
This paper outlines the evolution of ideas on the topic of alcoholic hallucinosis. From 1847 to 1987 numerous descriptive case-histories appeared in the literature.

These were the acute onset of the illness, the predominance of auditory hallucinations and a history of heavy drinking.
