In brief: Parkinsons hallucina

Patients with neurodegenerative conditions like parkinson's may commonly complain of hallucinations and this includes taste, smell, visual and hearing.
Typically don't see a lot of motor/tactile hallucinations. These hallucinations can be seen in a number of conditions and should be evaluated for other disturbances with further imaging in some cases. Typically not dangerous.
