Use of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Treatment of Auditory Hallucinations: A Case Report and Brief Review

Gökben Hızlı Sayar, Hüseyin Bulut, Nevzat Tarhan.

In this case we report the efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for treatment resistant auditory verbal hallucinations. The majority of protocols have utilized low-frequency suppressive repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation over the left temporoparietal cortex with some therapeutic benefits in ameliorating auditory hallucinations. Normalizing the functional connectivity between the temporoparietal and frontal brain regions may underlie the therapeutic effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia. Regarding side effects, the rTMS intervention was well tolerated in this case. Future research must focus on the optimum stimulation site and parameters.

Key words: Transcranial magnetic stimulation, rTMS, schizophrenia, auditory hallucinations
