Gustatory Hallucination

Gustatory hallucination is the sensation of tasting something that isn’t really there, typically an unpleasant flavor. Can be a symptom of certain types of epilepsy, or schizophrenia.

Example: The patient complains that his food tastes rotten, although the flavor seems normal to everyone else at the table.
