Anosmia and ageusia as presenting complaints of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infection.J Family Med Prim Care. 2020 Aug; 9(8):4406-4408.JF
The recently discovered SARS-CoV2 virus produces a influenza like illness named Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The usual presentation is with upper/lower respiratory tract symptoms and rarely gastrointestinal symptoms. Although some of the clinical features of this novel disease like fever, dry cough, and shortness of breath have been well documented in literature, we report hitherto infrequently reported clinical features of this disease, namely Anosmia and Ageusia.
