Sir: We thank Dr. Teunisse for his comments regarding our article on musical hallucinations (MH)/musical obsessions(MO). His first concern was that the 2 questions we used to assess MH may have caused a biased rate of MH in different mental diagnoses, due to more false-negative responses among psychotic patients. However, as mentioned in the Method section, following the 2 direct questions on MH/MO, the patients should also have been able to provide many more details on their past MH experience.​
