This is a case ­report of a sixty-two years old man suf­fer­ing from a cra­nio-ver­te­bral mal­for­ma­tion whose dens epis­tro­phei was ­removed ­through a trans­oral ­approach. During the post­op­er­a­tive ­course, he expe­ri­enced a tran­sient pedun­cu­lar hal­lu­cin­o­sis prob­ably ­caused by sur­gi­cal trau­ma on his brain­stem. The pos­sible phys­io­path­o­log­i­cal, etio­path­o­log­i­cal, clin­i­cal, and ther­a­peu­tic ­aspects of this rare phe­nom­e­non are dis­cussed.
