Nine Cases that Complained of Nasal Smell and Diagnosed as Self-Smelling

Authors: Toshiro Takami

Nine cases that complained of nasal smell and have been diagnosed as self-smelling in psychiatry is shown. But they actually have a strong nasal smell. Since there is no atrophy of nasal concha and crust formation, it does not apply to the concept of atrophic rhinitis / bronchoscopy. It is thought that it has been overlooked because it is a disease condition not recognized visually but only as an odor. The onset age is somewhat slower than atrophic rhinitis / bronchitis, and there is no difference in the number of men and women suffered. There were many complaints of "smell of fart" and "stinky smell of fish", it was thought that Staphylococcus aureus in the former case and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the latter case proliferated mainly in the intranasal nasal cavities. Although the frequency of this disease is high, it is diagnosed as self-smelling in neglect or psychiatry. I call it a new type odor nasal disease. It can be said that this is a terminal state of chronic rhinosinusitis.
