This paper reviews the olfactory physiology, summarizes the clinical reports of anosmia in current and previous viral outbreaks, and specifically discusses neurological implications of this syndrome. Those COVID-19 patients who do not rapidly recover olfactory function might have suffered greater intranasal injury. It is important to note that dysgeusia (lack of taste, also a chemical sense) has also been reported in COVID-19-infected patients (Hopkins et al. Self-reported olfactory and taste disorders in SARS-CoV-2 patients: a cross-sectional study, Pathophysiology of olfactory disorders and potential treatment strategies, Two-way cross-protection between West Nile and Japanese encephalitis viruses in bonnet macaques, Update on rhinovirus and coronavirus infections, Multiple organ infection and the pathogenesis of SARS, Tissue distribution of ACE2 protein, the functional receptor for SARS coronavirus. 2019), supported by the detection of HSV-1 DNA in 1.9% of the asymptomatic general population (Olsson et al. 2020). Anosmia is a well-described symptom of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). This may be an area for further investigation. 2020). When healthy volunteers were inoculated with the HCoV-229E strain, patients began to report nasal obstruction and an impaired sense of smell. Neuroinvasion by human respiratory coronaviruses. 1998). 2002). Olsson J, Lövheim H, Honkala E, Karhunen PJ, Elgh F, Kok EH. Nevertheless, it has become clear that there is a striking incidence of neurological involvement in this disease, the symptoms of which span reversible anosmia, stroke-related disability, and death. OSNs are bipolar neurons with axons that form synapses in the olfactory bulb, as well as dendrites that project out into the nasal cavity and are enwrapped by sustentacular cells (Liang 2018). 2020). 115(1):88–92. Olfactory dysfunction in multiple sclerosis. -, Arbour N, Day R, Newcombe J, Talbot PJ. This possibility of physical obstruction (conductive olfactory loss) was initially considered a likely explanation of the anosmia in COVID-19 (Eliezer and others 2020; Gane and others 2020; Qiu and others 2020), but has now been all but ruled out by several studies, primarily because a large fraction (nearly 60%, von Bartheld and others 2020) of patients with anosmia do not have nasal congestion, … Contribution of authors The endemic coronavirus strains HCoV-OC43 and -229E have been detected in postmortem specimens (Stewart et al. Search for other works by this author on: Correspondence to be sent to Ivan Lopez, Department of Head and Neck Surgery, University of California, Los Angeles, 1000 Veteran Avenue, Rehabilitation Center 35–64, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA. From each dendritic knob of an OSN, 10–30 cilia protrude out into the mucus layer (Glezer and Malnic 2019). COVID status should be established through history/PCR/serology in patients if possible. Covid-19, i sintomi più diffusi. It is therefore perhaps no surprise that the novel COVID-19 virus would also cause anosmia in infected patients. 2010). A similar finding was confirmed using the University of Pennsylvania Smell Identification Test (Moein et al. 2005). However, the preliminary data on COVID-19 patients identified a novel viral syndrome of acute anosmia without rhinitis or nasal obstruction. ISS, 21 maggio 2020 - Il mantenimento dei normali livelli plasmatici di vitamina D (VitD) non solo può giocare un ruolo nel ridurre i rischi di infezioni acute delle vie respiratorie, ma potrebbe essere importante per il trattamento di due sintomi tipici della malattia da Covid-19, quali l'anosmia e l'ageusia, ossia rispettivamente la perdita dell'olfatto e del gusto lamentati da più pazienti. 2001). “This is extremely important, nobody with anosmia in the last month or two needs to see a doctor,” Zonakis said. Although most patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 experience a mild disease, nearly 5% progress to disseminated viral pneumonia and multiorgan failure (Wu and McGoogan 2020). Currently, the CDC lists fever, cough and shortness of breath as the most common symptoms of COVID-19.

Conductive loss occurs due to impaired nasal airflow and is reversible when the obstruction clears; sensorineural loss implies dysfunction of the OE and can be permanent or have a longer time course to functional recovery. NLM Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a multiorgan manifestation caused by an infection of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) first discovered in Wuhan, China, in 2019. The rates of permanent anosmia post-COVID-19 infection and impact of viral treatment regimens should be assessed. Sinonasal pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19: A systematic review of the current evidence. The single-cell RNA-seq approach has been used to identify specific cells of the OE that coexpress ACE2 and TMPRSS2. 2010. Could COVID-19 anosmia and olfactory dysfunction trigger an increased risk of future dementia in patients with ApoE4? We aim to review the pathophysiology of anosmia related to viral upper respiratory infections and the prognostic implications. doi: 10.1111/jnc.15197.

The running hypothesis is that the … 21:92–96. In the pre-COVID era, olfactory impairment resulting from sinonasal disease ranged from 14% to 30% of all patients presenting with anosmia (Cain et al. The N-terminal end of the spike protein (S1) contains the receptor-binding domain that binds to the host’s angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), resulting in a conformational change of the S protein. Data gathered by the Covid Symptom Study app suggests that anosmia is a more accurate sign of whether someone will test positive for Covid-19 than a fever. Current evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2-related anosmia may be a new viral syndrome specific to COVID-19 and can be mediated by intranasal inoculation of SARS-CoV-2 into the olfactory neural circuitry. Reports of olfactory dysfunction in otherwise asymptomatic persons have led to interest in this sign as a potential early indicator of SARS-CoV-2 infection (Hopkins et al. 1992). Charles Greer, PhD, was intrigued when he read in The New York Times that some COVID-19 patients reported losing their sense of smell. The global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2 remains a challenge for prevention due to asymptomatic or paucisymptomatic patients. -, Armien AG, Hu S, Little MR, Robinson N, Lokensgard JR, Low WC, Cheeran MC. Although the symptoms of COVID-19 are predominantly respiratory, symptoms and complications in the central and peripheral nervous system have increasingly been described, including anosmia, ageusia and headache ().These complications are possibly caused by direct viral injury, immunological mechanisms and by hypoxia ().It is estimated that with the COVID-19 pandemic there … 2020 Nov 17;103:420-422. doi: 10.1016/j.ijid.2020.11.146. In these patients, the “post-URI anosmia” or “postviral anosmia” persists for weeks to months after the clearance of rhinitis and associated upper respiratory infection (URI) symptoms until the damaged parts of the nasal OE regenerate. 1992; Hoffmann et al. J Virol. 2010). A viral infection of the nasal OE can result in injury to part or all of the nasal OE, including OSNs. The mechanism of SARS-CoV entry into host cells has been well characterized and resembles that of the human immunodeficiency virus and the influenza virus. 2004). 2007). Anosmia post covid-19 Anosmia, non sento odori da oltre un anno Anosmia fluttuante e perdita parziale del gusto con episodi di percezione di odore sgradevole MS is a disease of the CNS characterized by patches of demyelination and autoimmune inflammation due to molecular mimicry. 2010). Keywords: The C-terminal of the viral spike protein (S2) contains heptad repeat domains (HR1 and HR2) that form a six-helix bundle fusion core structure during fusion, enabling viral RNA entry into the cell (Du et al. Online ahead of print. 2001; Seiden and Duncan 2001; Temmel et al. T-cells are especially crucial in clearing mouse hepatitis virus from olfactory neurons (Pearce et al. Acta Otolaryngol. Half of the patients with COVID-19 present with anosmia. Furthermore, these patients presented with anosmia and ageusia associated with fever (>37.5 °C) without nasal obstruction or rhinitis. 1990; Yamagishi et al. The purpose of this study was to determine if … Methods: A comprehensive electronic search was conducted using PubMed, MEDLINE, Scopus, Cochrane database, and Google Scholar from 1 June 2020 to 12 June 2020. Since the olfactory bulb is considered an immunological organ contributing to prevent the invasion of viruses, it could have a role in host defense. Ormai lo sappiamo, Covid-19 può colpire non solo i polmoni, ... School ha provato a capire meglio qual è il meccanismo alla base della riduzione o della perdita dell’olfatto, l’anosmia. All'inizio della pandemia, medici e ricercatori temevano che l'anosmia legata a COVID-19 potesse indicare che il virus arriva nel cervello attraverso il naso, dove potrebbe causare danni gravi e duraturi. COVID-19; anosmia; coronavirus; olfaction; post-viral anosmia. We can glean understanding from other respiratory viral infections, including other coronaviruses in particular. Olfactory epithelium histopathological findings in long-term coronavirus disease 2019 related anosmia. A recent neuroimmunologic study revealed that microglia serve a critical role in limiting the replication of a mouse hepatitis virus via innate and virus-specific T-cell responses (Wheeler et al. Recent evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 causes cardiac injury by targeting pericytes in the heart with high expression of ACE2 (Chen et al. Indeed, the degree and quality of olfactory deficit in post-HSE patients varies, suggesting that some patients might suffer from a more “central” pattern of olfactory impairment involving limbic areas (Landis et al. Supporting evidence that SARS-CoV-2 causes conductive olfactory dysfunction comes from the time of onset of anosmia in these patients: olfactory dysfunction after (26.7–65.4%) or at the same time (22.8%) as the general or ENT symptoms in COVID-19 patients (Lechien et al. HHS 2020). 1988; Miwa et al. Anecdotal and preliminary evidence from multiple institutions shows that these patients present with a sudden onset of anosmia … 1994; Reiss et al. Permanent anosmia has been described in patients who recovered from HSE (Landis et al. 20(4):738–750. Post-HSE anosmia often presents with other neurological sequelae, including epilepsy, amnesia, and cognitive deficits. We aim to review the pathophysiology of anosmia related to viral upper respiratory infections and the prognostic implications. Over 2 million patients have been infected worldwide and the United States is now leading the number of infections and deaths by COVID-19 infection with unprecedented efforts to contain the viral spread (Dong et al. doi: 10.1093/chemse/bjaa031. The cerebrospinal fluid of this patient was found to have a high SARS-CoV viral load (6884 copies/mL). Nat Commun. Interestingly, recent studies have indicated that olfactory dysfunction is correlated with progressive cognitive impairment and physical disability in MS patients (Atalar et al. It is possible that the apparently increasing incidence of olfactory dysfunction is due to greater awareness and more careful assessment of the symptom. Magnetic resonance imaging of a patient with SARS-CoV-2-related isolated sudden anosmia revealed normal olfactory bulb volume and signal intensity (Galougahi et al. Moein ST, Hashemian SMR, Mansourafshar B, Khorram-Tousi A, Tabarsi P, Doty RL.  |  Hung EC, Chim SS, Chan PK, Tong YK, Ng EK, Chiu RW, Leung CB, Sung JJ, Tam JS, Lo YM.

Sungnak W, Huang N, Bécavin C, Berg M, Queen R, Litvinukova M, Talavera-López C, Maatz H, Reichart D, Sampaziotis F, et al. Several possible mechanisms are suggested for the SARS-CoV-2 anosmia that may cause anosmia alone or in concert. Of note, HCoV-229E uses human aminopeptidase N as the receptor for host entry, which is different from SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 that use ACE2 (Yeager et al. Intranasal inoculation of HCoV-OC43 in mice resulted in viral antigen detection in the olfactory bulb 3 days later and in the whole brain 7 days later (Perlman et al. Several respiratory viruses are able to cause post-viral olfactory dysfunction, suggesting a sensorineural damage. 2020). eCollection 2020 Jun. Preliminary data from Fodoulian et al. Each OSN expresses a unique OR type, and the axons of all OR-specific OSNs project to the glomeruli, where they synapse with mitral and tufted cells in the olfactory bulb. Anosmia can be due to a number of factors, including an inflammation of the nasal mucosa, blockage of nasal passages or a destruction of one temporal lobe.Inflammation is due to chronic mucosa changes in the lining of the paranasal sinus and in the middle and superior turbinates.. 2020). 2015; Diodato et al. The neurodegenerative properties of latent HCoV infection emerged from a study that demonstrated a higher prevalence of HCoV-OC43 in postmortem brain specimens from multiple sclerosis (MS) patients compared to a control group (Arbour et al. 2000; Fazakerley and Walker 2003). In this case report, a 59-year-old male who had SARS-related respiratory symptoms experienced four-limb twitching and status epilepticus. Insufficient PCR testing capability further hindered diagnosis and early containment within the United States. The researchers from France and Belgium can’t explain why anosmia indicates a better prognosis for COVID-19. Du L, He Y, Zhou Y, Liu S, Zheng BJ, Jiang S. Duarte LF, Farías MA, Álvarez DM, Bueno SM, Riedel CA, González PA. Dubé M, Le Coupanec A, Wong AHM, Rini JM, Desforges M, Talbot PJ. Initially, odorants enter the superior aspect of the nasal cavity, which is lined by the olfactory epithelium (OE; see Whitman and Greer 2009). SARS-CoV-2 is thought to enter the host cell in a similar way via priming of S protein subunits by TMPRSS2 and initiation of viral entry by their interaction with the host cell’s ACE2 (Hoffmann et al. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. Mice that survived the acute phase of the infection showed diffuse immune cell infiltration through the brain with profound atrophy of the piriform and entorhinal cortices and amygdala (Armien et al. 2021 Jan 5;147:110479. doi: 10.1016/j.mehy.2020.110479.

Different studies estimate that 30-85% of patients with COVID-19 report loss of sense of smell. Online ahead of print. Here, the odorants are detected by odorant receptors (ORs) on the cilia of the OSNs. 2020 Apr 16;5(3):354-359. doi: 10.1002/lio2.384. We now have strong evidence to support a link between loss of smell and COVID-19. 2020). Olfactory function provides critical information about the environment, which is why substantial neural circuitry is dedicated to processing olfaction and multisensory integration. Some studies have hinted that anosmia in COVID-19 differs from anosmia caused by other viral infections, including by other coronaviruses. Int J Environ Res Public Health. Atalar AÇ, Erdal Y, Tekin B, Yıldız M, Akdoğan Ö, Emre U. Beites CL, Kawauchi S, Crocker CE, Calof AL. USA.gov. Aesthetic Plast Surg. 2021 Jan 5:1-4. doi: 10.1007/s00266-020-02078-2. Human clinical and autopsy specimens further support the occasional neuroinvasion of coronaviruses. Anecdotal and preliminary evidence from multiple institutions shows that these patients present with a sudden onset of anosmia without rhinitis. More recent olfactory surveys on COVID-19 patients showed olfactory dysfunction in 20–85% of patients (Giacomelli et al. 1 1 COVID-19 Anosmia Reporting Tool: Initial Findings 2 3 Rachel Kaye, MD, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ 4 5 C.W. Recently, a patient with anosmia, dysgeusia, with a cortical hyperintensity in the right gyrus rectus and a subtle hyperintensity in the olfactory bulbs, compatible with viral brain invasion was reported. Relationship between disease severity and serum IL-6 levels in COVID-19 anosmia. Based on reviewing anosmia as a result of viral infection, specific mechanisms of anosmia can be postulated. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide, This PDF is available to Subscribers Only. Online ahead of print. Preliminary evidence reveals that sudden anosmia might be the sole presenting symptom of COVID-19 patients (Gane et al. Nasal congestion and obstruction similar to the common cold may contribute to a conductive olfactory loss. Postviral anosmia may ensue in a subacute fashion after the acute symptoms of URI resolve. Nerve conduction study and electromyography findings in patients recovering from Covid-19 - Case report. Isolated loss of smell (LOS) A) Patients with COVID infection (regardless of LOS duration): An MRI scan of brain is not recommended. All of these viruses contain a viral spike protein (S protein) belonging to a group of class I viral fusion proteins. In 214 hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Wuhan, 5.1% and 5.6% of patients presented with hyposmia and hypogeusia, respectively (Mao et al. Subsequent studies revealed that goblet cells of the nasal respiratory epithelium have a high level of ACE2 expression (Sungnak et al. Furthermore, as mentioned before, the olfactory dysfunction was temporary with recovery within 8 days in the majority of COVID-19 patients (Lechien et al. -. Certainly, this hypothesis would require longitudinal patient studies to delineate and gather more evidence on the progressive decline of neurological function. The recovery time was not assessed in this particular study, and it is not clear whether this was conductive or sensorineural olfactory dysfunction (Akerlund et al. 1995; Lane et al. 74(19):8913–8921. Strictly speaking, olfactory dysfunction due to central causes would require involvement of the brain areas processing olfactory information. Olfactory dysfunction after SARS-CoV infection was also reported in the past (Hwang 2006). 2018). Steroids inhibit this OSN regeneration as seen in murine models of OE injury from intranasal lipopolysaccharide administration (Crisafulli et al. Some studies have hinted that anosmia in COVID-19 differs from anosmia caused by other viral infections, including by other coronaviruses. Olfactory memory representations are stored in the anterior olfactory nucleus. Upon infection of the nasal respiratory and OE, neutrophilic inflammation ensues, resulting in mucosal edema and rhinorrhea. The global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) remains a challenge for prevention due to asymptomatic or paucisymptomatic patients. Lechien JR, Chiesa-Estomba CM, De Siati DR, Horoi M, Le Bon SD, Rodriguez A, Dequanter D, Blecic S, El Afia F, Distinguin L, et al. The herpes virus is an enveloped double-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid virus of the Herpesviridae family (Duarte et al. 2018). Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a highly infectious respiratory illness caused by SARS-CoV-2. 2005; Leung et al. 2012). 2020; Lechien et al. Interestingly, administering cyclosporine to induce immune suppression during HCoV-OC43 inoculation did not prevent the formation of vacuolating lesions and neuronal death in mice, which suggests that some aspects of neurodegeneration are not immunologically mediated (Jacomy and Talbot 2003).
