Explore the latest in olfaction and taste, including recent advances in understanding the etiologies and manifestations of disorders of smell and taste.
This longitudinal observational study determines if the combination of smell identification testing followed by dopamine transporter imaging can accurately and efficiently identify individuals from the general population at risk for conversion to a clinical diagnosis of Parkinson disease.
This study examined 50 years of facial images of fashion models to determine a trend toward fuller lips.
This cross-sectional study examines whether inflammatory cytokines are present in the olfactory cleft and whether they correlate with objective olfaction.
This Teachable Moment questions the routine use of thickened liquids to prevent pneumonia in patients with dementia.
This study examines the incidence of hypogeusia in a group of healthy children as well as correlations with sociodemographic and olfactory findings.
This pilot study examines olfactory deficits from early chronic tracheostomy following decannulation and explores whether there is a critical period in the postnatal development and neuroplasticity of olfaction.
This study measured olfactory impairment and its association with mild cognitive impairment or dementia due to Alzheimer disease.
A teenage girl experienced loss of smell; she failed the Penn smell tests, and MRI of the anterior skull base demonstrated absent olfactory sulci and bilateral olfactory grooves containing minimal tissue. What is your diagnosis?
This systematic review describes the reported rates and types of delayed complications after cochlear implantation in adults and children.
A teenaged boy had dizziness, vomiting, unstable gait, and headaches; a sodium level of 109 mEq/L; and a mass in the superior right maxillary sinus with extension into the infundibulum. What is your diagnosis?
This school-based randomized clinical trial evaluates the short-term and long-term effects of chef-enhanced meals and extended exposure to choice architecture on healthier school food selection and consumption. See the Editorial by Patel and Volpp.
A woman in her 50s presented with an 8-week history of increasing headache, hyposmia, hypogeusia, and nasal congestion. Endoscopic nasopharyngoscopy revealed a large polypoid nasal mass occupying the left nasal roof and completely obstructing the nasal passage. Contrast-enhanced T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed a soft-tissue mass within the left ethmoid cavity. What is your diagnosis?
Influenza vaccination seems to be associated with a decreased rate of subjective olfactory dysfunction. This study provides a preliminary finding, and further studies would be needed to elucidate the exact role of influenza and influenza vaccination in patients with olfactory loss.
This clinic-based 2-year follow-up study reports that, as a group, GBA mutation–positive individuals show a deterioration in clinical markers consistent with the prodrome of Parkinson disease. Within this group of individual, 10% appear to be evolving at a more rapid rate.
Pence and colleagues identify risk factors and potential trends over time in olfactory-related hazardous events in patients with impaired olfactory function.
This modeling-based economic evaluation suggests that the most cost-effective decision is to not obtain routine magnetic resonance imaging of the brain in patients with idiopathic olfactory loss.
