Anosmia: A marker of infection by the new corona virus.
Respir Med Case Rep. 2020; 31:101129.RM

Abstract

The diagnosis of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is based on the identification of common symptoms such as fever, tiredness and dry cough. Anosmia and ageusia are also in fact symptoms of the infection with the new coronavirus and recently were considered as symptoms by the World Health Organization. In this case report we present the new onset anosmia during the COVID-19 pandemic. The patient, 31-year-old, reported olfactory and gustatory dysfunctions as initial symptoms of mild-to-moderate form of the COVID-19. Therefore, chemosensory dysfunctions should serve as a warning to health professionals as a possible marker of infection with the new corona virus.
