Danish term or phrase: hallucinationer, syns-
Ved bivirkningen hallucinationer, syns- er der tale om synshallucinationer. FOLLOW-UP modtaget den 28Jul2010 fra patientens egen læge.

The first sentence doesn't make sense to me, "in the case of hallucinations, visual, there is talk of visual hallucinations." Am I missing something here?

English translation:hallucinations, visual
Explanation:
It seems to me that "hallucinationer, syns-" is a reference to a labeled side-effect, i.e., a side-effect written somewhere (label, package insert, other written material) as "hallucinationer, syns-". Hence, the text merely explains that the item "hallucinations, visual" refers to visual hallucinations (even though that should be pretty obvious).
