Article abstract

A man with left-sided deafness developed right-sided hearing loss after hypertensive hemorrhage at the right pontine tegmentum and began to experience ipsilateral musical hallucinations. Two weeks later, the right hearing returned, and the hallucinations disappeared. Auditory hallucinations due to brainstem lesions may be musical in nature and associated with hearing loss.
