Abstract

Olfactory Reference Syndrome (ORS) is one of the varieties of the somatic type of the Delusional Disorder, and it is characterized by the mistaken statement of a patient who declares the issuance of a foul odor coming from his own body and that others may notice. In the upcoming edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) it has been proposed to break off ORS as an independent pathology. From an illustrative case report, we review the relevant literature and discuss this proposal.
