Musicogenic epilepsy is a reflex epilepsy provoked by listening to or playing music. The epileptogenic network involves temporal regions, usually mesiotemporal structures. We present a 31-year-old female patient who experienced musicogenic seizures after a right temporal lobectomy with amygdalohippocampectomy that was performed in order to treat preexisting right mesio-temporal epilepsy.
