Abstract

Qualitative olfactory disorders such as parosmia and phantosmia are not well investigated. In particular, the causes and treatment options for phantosmia are largely unknown. We report a case of long lasting phantosmia that disappeared under anti-depressive treatment, raising the question to what extent certain forms of qualitative olfactory disorders are an early symptom of depression.
