    Author(s): Shweta Kalita, Chiraag Ashokkumar* and Alan R. Hirsch

    Objective: Pathophysiology behind reduced olfactory ability in hyperosmic individuals. Background: Covid-19 infection as an enantiopathy to hyperosmia has not been described. Design/Methods: A 63 year-right-handed male presented with hyperosmia of 150% of normal whereby aromas appeared distorted and disgusting. Shortly, he tested positive for Covid-19 which led to a resolution of his hyperosmia. Alcohol Sniff Test scores fluctuated between zero and three (anosmia). Gradually, his smell improved from 80% and 100% of normal. However, post Covid-19 infection, it returned to 130% of normal. Results: Neurological abnormalities, Olfatory testing, Odor discrimination memory test, Total 7/12 (hyposmia). Bilateral olfactory threshold testing to phenylethyl alcohol 3 (hyposmia). Taste Threshold and Suprathr.. Read More»
