Haydn, Franz Joseph
- (1732-1809)An Austrian composer whose musical creativity has been attributed in part to his "musical hallucinations. Haydn suffered from "hearing loss, vertigo, "tinnitus, and "hyperacusis. As this combination of symptoms is highly suggestive of an otic lesion, it has been argued that Haydn's musical hallucinations may well have had an otological origin, possibly related with "pulsatile tinnitus. It has also been suggested that his mental decline later in life stemmed from a subcortical vascular encephalopathy, possibly due to syphilis, and that his prior otological problems may have been manifestations of otic syphilis.ReferencesGordon, A.G.
