The Congenital Anosmia Pages: Introduction
Welcome. Hopefully this is a useful resource for the 20-or-so people daily who type "anosmia" into a search engine and end up here. My anosmia is congenital (meaning 'since birth'), but that's a pretty rare condition so I've included some information about anosmia generally. You'll also find plenty of messages from other people with anosmia at the foot of each page. Definition
Anosmia is the absence of the sense of smell. It can be partial or complete , and can be a result of an injury illness , or can be congenital . People with a normal sense of smell confuse the sensations given to them by their tongue (sweet, salty, etc.) with those they detect using their nose. So, people with anosmia also have a limited sense of what many people would regard as taste What you can find in these pages
The following content is provided:
  • Fascinating Anosmia Facts that I've picked up over the years
  • Personal accounts written by people who visited this web site
  • The Smell Directory , a database of interesting smells for anosmics
  • A few links to other recommended web sites
  • Results of a survey of visitors to this site
  • A link to the Fox News Online article based on this website

Dr. Karl L. Wuensch (Ph.D.)
Contact Information for Dr. Karl L. Wuensch I am an experimental psychologist who suffers from anosmia, the inability to smell things. Although my doctoral studies did include research on the chemical senses, especially as they relate to behavior, my research subjects were rodents, not humans. I am by no means an expert on human olfaction or clinical/medical issues. Because of my own condition, I have assembled a collection of links to web resources that might help others learn about anosmia. From my own experiences with anosmia, I have learned a bit about polyps and allergy and how they relate to anosmia. I know very little, however, about anosmia caused by viral infection, head trauma, congenital factors, and other causes. Those seeking information on such topics may, however, find relevant information in the web resources I have linked on this site. Those who still have questions or something they would like to share are encouraged to post on one or more of the discussion groups linked on this site. I prefer the Dysosmia (Smell Disorders) Community at Yahoo, since I prefer to use a mail-based client rather than a web-based client (although one can use the Yahoo discussion groups from their web-pages too). I have categorized links into the major groups show below. Just click on the title of the group to be taken to a page with links in that group.

Anosmia Defined
What is anosmia? By definition in the UNESCO/IUBS/EUBIOS Bioethics Dictionary QUOTE: "ANOSMIA: (Greek a + osme 'without smell'). 'Odor blindness' - the total loss or impairment of the sense of smell. Anosmia may be temporary resulting, for example, from an obstructive respiratory infection or a blow on the head which may damage the olfactory receptors, or be permanent as a result of an irreversible damage to any part of the olfactory apparatus. Sometimes anosmia (the so called specific anosmias) does not involve a total loss or reduction of the sense of smell but is instead specific to particular substances; for example, 3% of the population has trouble smelling the odor of sweat, 12% have diminished sensitivity to musky odors. It is important to note that anosmia may be induced by injuring the olfactory receptors consequent to inhaling caustic substances such as lead, zinc sulfate, or concentrated matter such as cocaine."

Antibiotics and Anosmia
I have had several persons contact me and ask if I knew whether or not the antibiotic that they took could cause anosmia. My standard response has been that I am aware of no research establishing a causal link between antibiotic use and loss of the sense of smell. I have suggested that it might be the illness for which the antibiotic was prescribed that caused the anosmia, not the antibiotic causing the anosmia. That said, I should also note that I found posts from several persons at Max's congential anosmia page suggesting that it was use of the antibiotic Zithromax which caused them to loose their sense of smell. I have also seen several posts in discussion groups from persons who said that their doctors had told them that anosmia is a rare side effect of Zithromax. The literature on the quinolone antibiotics, including Cipro (ciprofloxacin hydrochloride, a fluoroquinolone), does list anosmia as one of many "post-marketing adverse events." This may suggest, but certainly does not establish with much certainty, a casual link between Cipro and anosmia.

Introduction ANOSMIA comes from the Greek; an [no] -osmia [smell]. This website is devoted to the loss and disturbance of the sense of smell and is intended as a resource for sufferers from olfactory disorders. The information it contains represents a review of the available literature and does not constitute medical advice. If you need medical advice then you should consult a physician (US) or your general practitioner (UK). To many people, the ability to sense thousands of different odours is a normal occurrence and something that they may take for granted. However, to a minority, this natural skill is lost due to a disorder of the olfactory system. For them the enjoyment of smelling pleasant odours such as freshly cut grass is prohibited. During human evolution, having the ability to smell has been fundamental for survival, enabling us to identify healthy food sources and detect danger. Nowadays, however, this skill is not so necessary in developed countries due to their abundant food supplies. Nevertheless, the loss of the sense of smell can have profound psychological and somatic consequences (Van Toller, 1999) - a fact that is little recognised by the general public or medical profession. Odours can bring both enhancement and improvement of life for an individual, whether it be the smell of food, fragrances or associating a particular odour with an event or person - we all know the smell of our loved ones. More than this, smell has other functions. Taste is to a great extent determined by smell (try eating while holding your nose), so a loss of smell often leads to a loss of taste. Smell is involved in relaying emotions; for example it can signal emotions such as fear and anxiety, and may be involved in other less understood aspects of human communication and sex.

The Dangers and Safety Precautions Related to the Olfactory Dysfunction Anosmia
Lora Muxworthy Psychology of Perception Stephen F. Austin State University February 19, 1999 Imagine the smell of some freshly baked cookies hot out of the oven, or the clean smell of a brand new car's interior. Have you ever thought what it might be like to never smell these scents again? What if you could not smell your dinner burning on the stove or the fact that the baby needs a diaper change? The National Institutes of Health in 1979 found that around 200,000 people consult their doctors every year for the decreased or total loss of smell (Crawford and Sounder, 95). The disorder is anosmia, the loss of the sense of smell, usually from a sinus infection or a nasal obstruction, which lasts only temporarily. Anosmia is also known as a permanent condition commonly resulting from a head injury or disease, such as airopic rhinitis or chronic rhititus associated with granulomatous disease, which destroys either the olfactory nerve. This smell disorder can also be caused by psychological factors, such as a specific fear of a particular smell (Mosby, 94). References Crawford, D. C, Sounder, E., (1995). Smell disorders = danger. RN, 58 (11), 40-44.

By Sara Penn February 2002 Return to Class front page. Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you did not have one of your five senses? At some point in our lives we have all seen a blind or deaf person but how often do we wonder what it would be like if we were in their shoes? Many people take their senses for granted, not giving much thought to the fact that something as simple as bumping your head the wrong way or getting a cold could take away your sense of smell forever. Anosmia is the total loss of the sense of smell and affects approximately two million Americans ( Wuensch, 2001 ). Of all the five senses, smell seems to be the least appreciated due to our society's beliefs that sight and hearing are more important for survival (Gillyatt, 1997). For most people, once they start to notice a decrease in their hearing or sight they go to the doctor almost immediately to fix the problem. However, because the sense of taste and smell are so closely related, many people attribute the problem to a lack of taste and do not see their doctor until the damage is irreversible (Thomson, 2001). Anosmia is a condition in which although there are mild cases, more serious cases do exist which may jeopardize the victim's life. This disorder not only affects the person's life and safety, but also has psychological effects as well . In any case, anosmia should not only be taken seriously, but resaerch should be continued in the hopes of finding better treatments. The amount of research being done in the area of anosmia and other olfactory disorders is very small. In the past, researchers have used such brain imaging technologies as fMRI's, PET scans and CT scans to observe different areas affected by olfactory dysfunctions. As pointed out above, the use of fMRI's is useful in detecting anosmia in such disorders as Alzheimer's disease. By using the paired-subtraction technique researchers are able to identify the areas related to olfactory functions and how these areas are affected by Alzheimer's and even Parkinson's disease. Such researching groups as Andrew et al. used fMRI's to observe areas of the brain in twelve Alzheimer's patients (Andrew et al., 2001). In the present, researchers are still exploring how anosmia is related to the brain pathologies of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. "Their work could lead to smell-based diagnostic tests for these diseases, as well as fresh insights into how they develop" (Thomson, 2001).
