Loss of Smell Loss of Smell Anosmia is the loss of the sense of smell, and traumatic anosmia is the loss of this sense due to physical injuries, usually from facial or head trauma. This trauma may be either in the form of a brain injury that impacts the portions of the brain where smells are sensed, or an injury to the olfactory nerve also known as the first cranial nerve that transmits smell-related sensory information from the smell receptors in the olfactory mucosa to the olfactory bulb -- the structure in the forebrain involved in the sense of smell. Anosmia is the loss of the sense of smell, and traumatic anosmia is the loss of this sense due to physical injuries, usually from facial or head trauma. Trauma to the olfactory nerve most often results from a fracture of the ethmoid bone that separates the roof of the nasal cavity from the floor of the eye sockets. This bone is fairly fragile and can be fractured by a blow to the face, such striking a steering wheel or dashboard in a motor vehicle collision especially if an air bag fails to deploy or by facial injuries in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall incident.
My sister fell down some stairs in March She was rushed by air ambulance to the hospital with a traumatic brain injury. Ever since her fall, she can no longer taste or smell anything. Her hands and feet are always freezing cold.
This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Background All nasal bone fractures have the potential for worsening of olfactory function. However, few studies have studied the olfactory outcomes following reduction of nasal bone fractures. This study evaluates posttraumatic olfactory dysfunction in patients with nasal bone fracture before and after closed reduction. The olfactory scores were compared across fracture types and between preoperative and postoperative settings.
