In brief: Very rare

This syndrome, where objects or the person's own body appear larger or smaller than normal, is very rare.
Some sources say only about 300 adults & children in the us have this. Another source said 9% of teens had transient experiences of micropsia. It can be a migraine equivalent, & can also appear in conditions like seizures, CNS infections, brain tumors, drug use, macular degeneration, etc.
