musical tinnitus
   A term used to denote a type of * tinnitus (i.e. 'ringing in the ears') characterized by songs, tunes, melodies, harmonics, rhythms, and/or timbres. Phenomenologically, musical tinnitus is indistinguishable from the *musical hallucination. However, it tends to co-occur with - or develop out of - other types of tinnitus. It is not unthinkable that the pathophysiological substratum of musical tinnitus and musical hallucinations is similar or even identical.
