Disorders of the Olfactory System; what goes wrong when we lose our sense of smell | Thomas Hummel, M.D - Smell & Taste Clinic (Dresden)

Olfactory disorders are common and affect about one fifth of the general population. The main causes of olfactory loss are post-viral upper respiratory infection, nasal/sinus disease and head trauma, and are therefore very frequent among patients in ear, nose and throat clinics. Loss of the sense of smell leads to disturbances in important olfactory areas, mainly in food enjoyment, detecting harmful food and smoke, and to some extent in social situations and working life. Most patients seem to deal well with these restrictions. However, a smaller proportion has considerable problems and expresses a noticeable reduction in general quality of life and enhanced depression.
