Peduncular hallucinosis secondary to central pontine myelinolysis.

Author information

Neuropsychiatry Unit, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.


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.
