Abstract

Peduncular hallucinations are generally associated with lesions in the midbrain. They have rarely been associated with central pontine myelinolysis, a condition associated with rapid alterations in serum sodium and chronic alcoholism. Described herein is the case of a 46-year-old man who developed typical peduncular hallucinations, whose imaging demonstrated central pontine myelinolysis. After alcohol cessation and neuroimaging resolution, the patient's hallucinatory phenomena abated.
