As with almost any aspect of medical practice, a thorough history and physical examination coupled with a good understanding of the anatomy and physiology of an organ system are the key factors in reaching a diagnosis. The information in this article is provided to assist the internist with the diagnosis of chemosensory disorders and the differentiation of malingering or other disease process as well as providing insight into the workup, prognosis, and treatment of patients with taste and smell disorders.
