Abstract
A case of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is presented in which the chief symptom was obsessive musical imagery. Such musical obsessions are not described in standard texts of psychiatry or phenomenology, or in articles on OCD; nor are they considered in diagnostic procedures for OCD. Either the symptom is rare, or it is unnoticed because of low clinical awareness.
